George Pisi will be forced to serve his full six-week ban, after his appeal was dismissed on Thursday.

The Saints centre had been punished for a tip tackle on Ireland wing Tommy Bowe during Samoa’s 40-9 defeat in Dublin on November 9.

Pisi will remain banned until December 23 and therefore misses Saints’ Heineken Cup double-header against Leinster.
