    Paris - Flanker Jarrad Hoeata of New Zealand Super 15 side Otago Highlanders has been banned from the competition for one week, a statement from the organisers said Monday.

    The disciplinary action resulted from the forward receiving a third yellow card this season when 'sin binned' in a 40-12 home loss to Canterbury Crusaders last weekend.

    After judicial officer Jannie Lubbe viewed footage of the three yellow cards, he offered the 29-year-old a one-week ban, which was accepted.

    Hoeata is the second Highlanders player to be barred within two days after centre Ma'a Nonu was given a three-week ban Sunday having been red carded for a tip tackle on a Crusader.

    Bottom-of-the-table Highlanders have won only twice this season in 14 outings and complete their season with visits to Wellington Hurricanes and Melbourne Rebels.
