Johannesburg - Blues winger Rene Ranger was suspended for one match following a SANZAR judicial hearing in Pretoria on Sunday.
He was found guilty of a dangerous tackle during the Super 14 match between the Blues and Bulls in Pretoria on Saturday.
The judicial officer found Ranger guilty of making a high and late tackle on Bulls hooker Derick Kuun in the 32nd minute of the first of the match. Kuun required treatment in the blood bin as a result of the tackle.
The ban means Ranger will not be available for the Blues' match against the Stormers in Cape Town on Saturday.
Lions players Jannie Boshoff and Heinke van der Merwe will appear before a SANZAR judicial officer on Tuesday after being cited for a dangerous tackle on Francois Steyn in the 76th minute of the match between the Sharks and the Lions on Saturday.
