12:48 pm on 10 November 2010

The All Blacks hooker Keven Mealamu's grand slam tour is over, having been banned for four weeks for head butting England captain Lewis Moody during Sunday's test at Twickenham.

Mealamu appeared to head butt Moody in the back of the head while the players scrambled for the ball in a ruck.

He appeared before a judicial hearing in Scotland this morning.

The All Blacks now have 48 hours to appeal the decision.
