Auckland - Georgia wing Lekso Gugava was on Monday suspended for five weeks after being found guilty of making a ‘dangerous tip tackle’ in his team's final Rugby World Cup pool game against Argentina.

Gugava was cited by Independent Citing Commissioner Achille Reali from broadcast footage of the match, which was won by the Pumas 25-7 in Palmerston North on Sunday.

The suspension takes effect immediately and Gugava is free to resume playing on November 8.
