Lions back-row Warwick Tecklenburg has been suspended for one week following a SANZAAR Judicial Hearing.

Tecklenburg was found guilty of contravening Law 10.4 (h) - (A player must not charge into a ruck or maul. Charging includes any contact made without use of the arms, or without grasping a player) - after he was cited during a Super Rugby match at the weekend.

The incident occurred in the 74th minute of the match between the Highlanders v Lions played at Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin on March 12.
