    Sunwolves wing Taulagi banned for 5 weeks

    2017-05-01 08:45

    Wellington - Sunwolves wing Jamie-Jerry Taulagi was banned for five weeks on Monday after pleading guilty to a dangerous tackle during the weekend's tense Super Rugby loss to the Chiefs.

    Taulagi was shown a red card for a shoulder charge targeting the head of Chiefs outside back Shaun Stevenson in the dying moments of the match in Hamilton.

    The SANZAAR judiciary said the Auckland-born player was facing a suspension of up to seven weeks, but it was reduced to five due to his early guilty plea and remorse.

    While Taulagi is suspended until June 10, a Round 12 bye and Super Rugby's mid-season break means he will miss only three matches.

    The next match he will be available for is the Sunwolves' clash with the Lions in Johannesburg on Saturday, July 1.
