It's down to the wire now for the five contenders who have been shortlisted for the ultimate individual accolade in northern hemisphere rugby, ERC European Player of the Year 2013.
The Tongan back-row was sin-binned for the foul but will now serve a seven week suspension.
The ban means Hala'ufia will miss the Exiles' opening two games in Europe against Edinburgh and Cardiff Blues, but will be free to play against Racing Metro in early December.
An RFU statement read: "Hala'ufia was duly suspended by the RFU disciplinary panel for seven weeks and will be able to play again on November 29 2011."
