Springbok prop Dean Greyling has been suspended for two weeks for striking All Blacks captain Richie McCaw in the face.
The replacement prop pleaded guilty to contravening Law 10.4 (a) Punching or Striking after he was cited following the match in Dunedin on Saturday.
Greyling has been suspended from all forms of the game for two weeks up to and including 30 September 2012.
SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer Paul Tully commented: "Greyling, whilst in the process of cleaning out at a ruck, recklessly used his forearm such that he made contact in a dangerous way with the head of New Zealand player Richie McCaw.
"Although there was no injury complained of, the action had potential to cause serious injury. The player was issued with a yellow card. He was subsequently cited and pleaded guilty to a breach of the law."
