London - England coach Stuart Lancaster will hold talks with hooker Dylan Hartley following his fifth career sending-off this month.

Hartley was shown the red card playing for Northampton against Leicester in a Premiership match two weeks ago for elbowing an opponent.

"He will have been disappointed in himself to put himself in that position," Lancaster told reporters. "I will have a conversation with him."

Hartley was sent off in last year's Premiership final against Leicester and received an 11-week ban which ruled him out of the British & Irish Lions tour of Australia.

He was suspended for three weeks for his latest offence but will be available for the start of the Six Nations in February.
