Canberra - Brumbies prop Guy Shepherdson has been suspended for two weeks after being found guilty of a striking charge arising from their Super 14 match against the Bulls in Canberra.
Shepherdson received a yellow card following a touch judge's report in the 27th minute of Friday's match after appearing to knee Bulls lock Danie Rossouw in the head.
He was subsequently cited to face a hearing on Saturday over the incident.
Judicial officer Campbell Thomson said the striking was "reckless" but the offence was at the lower end of the scale where the entry point penalty is three weeks.
Thomson said he took into account Shepherdson's previously unblemished record over 64 games for the Brumbies and 18 matches for the Wallabies in reducing his suspension to two weeks.
Shepherdson is ineligible to play until May 3 and will miss the Brumbies' next Super 14 matches against the Hurricanes and Reds.
The Brumbies beat the Bulls 32-31 with a converted try in the final three minutes of Friday's match.
