The Highlanders winger Waisake Naholo has been suspended for one week after being red carded in their Super Rugby win over the Bulls in Pretoria last weekend.
Naholo was shown a red card by referee Jaco van Heerden after a late shoulder collected a Bulls player in the face.
The Highlanders were then forced to play the last 17 minutes with just 14 men and managed to record a 17-10 win.
The All Black will miss the Highlanders game against the Western Force in Perth this weekend.
The SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee accepted a guilty plea from Naholo.
The Committee decided Naholo's actions breached the Red Card threshold.
