Three week ban rules Nonu out of Super Rugby

Ma'a Nonu
All Blacks and Highlanders centre Ma’a Nonu will miss the rest of the Super Rugby season after he was given a three week ban following a red card for a tackle on Tom Marshall.

Nonu’s ban will run for a period of three (3) weeks from 29 June 2013 up to and including 21 July 2013 which effectively rules him out of Super Rugby for the rest of the season.

The Highlanders are out of the running for the play offs and their final regular season match is on July the 2th against the Melbourne Rebels.

The 31-year-old Highlanders  centre came on as a second half replacement but was shown a red card in the 58th minute after he tip tackled Crusaders back Tom Marshall in Dunedin.
