I recall seeing that he was going to miss some but not all prem cup games
Just checked, it suggests he don’t be available until 21 sept, which means he’d be free to play
Nice one. From the disciplinary decision that was posted on here previously (I'll try and find it) make mention of friendly games that he would be missing - so if he's not missing any friendlies, wouldn't that push back his clear to play again, date ? i.e he's suspended from x number of games, not x number of weeks.
It was 6 weeks
on the assumption that he would miss the meaningful friendlies and the 7's games
First, the final game that England will play in the 2019 World Rugby U20 Championship dated June 22, 2019.
Next, the three pre-season games that Sale Sharks play against: Castres in France on August 17, 2019; Newcastle in England on August 24, 2019; and Russia in Moscow on September 1, 2019. These three pre-season games are full 15s played pursuant to the Laws of the Game and in venues and with public ticketing as is usual for this level of rugby. These fixtures are crucial to young club players and the clubs themselves as they provide opportunities which are particularly important in a World Cup year when a number of senior players will be in Japan during the season.
Thereafter, Sale Sharks are scheduled to play in the Premiership Rugby 7s on September 13 and 14, 2019. The Player has a significant history in 7s and this competitive tournament provides development opportunities for young

players. This entire tournament will count as one week towards the Player’s suspension.
The sixth game is a Sale Sharks Premiership Cup fixture on September 21, 2019. The draw has not yet been made for an opponent. This fixture will be played in compliance with all the Laws of the Game and played at a venue with characteristics ordinarily used by teams of this level. It will be open to the public with normal ticketing.
All of these matches satisfy the criteria required by Reg 17.19.10. The Player is advised to contact Ben Rutherford should any of the above fixtures be changed in any way.
