    Cape Town - SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer Mike Heron has accepted a guilty plea from Chiefs winger Maritino Nemani for contravening Law 10.4 (j): Lifting a player from the ground and either dropping or driving that player’s head and/or upper body into the ground, after he was cited during their Super Rugby clash against the Blues on Saturday.

    Nemani tackled Blues winger Rene Ranger so that his upper body came into contact with the ground while his legs were still in the air.
    Nemani has been suspended from all forms of the game for three weeks up to and including 23 June.
    The incident occurred in the 35th minute of the match at North Harbour Stadium, which the Chiefs won 41-34.
