Auckland - Assistant coach Neil Jenkins says Wales has not discussed appealing the three-week suspension imposed on its Rugby World Cup captain Sam Warburton and is likely to "take the medicine that's been given to us."

Warburton was banned after being sent off for a dangerous tip tackle on winger Vincent Clerc during Wales' 9-8 semifinal loss to France and will miss Friday's third-place playoff against Australia. The penalty was handed down Sunday and Wales has 48 hours to appeal.

Jenkins told a news conference on Monday that Wales' coaching staff had not discussed appealing.

He says "it's in the past now and we've got to look forward to Friday's game and try to put it to the back of our minds."
