Will be classed as a low end dangerous tackle, so 2 weeks (but maybe -50% as first red in England, so may only miss the Gloucester game)
9.13 A player must not tackle an opponent early, late or dangerously. Dangerous tackling includes, but is not limited to, tackling or attempting to tackle an opponent above the line of the shoulders even if the tackle starts below the line of the shoulders.
Low-end: 2 weeks
Mid-range: 6 weeks
Top-end: 10+ weeks
Max: 52 weeks

Unfortunately this isn't quite right as they have recently added the caveat that a tackle with significant contact to the head is an automatic mid range offence. On that basis, I'd expect 6 weeks - 50% mitigation so 3 weeks.
