Auckland - Fiji flank Dominiko Waqaniburotu has appealed his three-match suspension for a tip tackle on South Africa's Pat Lambie at the Rugby World Cup.

The International Rugby Board said Thursday that Waqaniburotu had lodged the appeal after a judicial hearing found him guilty on Tuesday of foul play in the September 17 match at Wellington.

The IRB said a three-man appeal committee will hear the case at a time and date to be determined.
