Stander cops one-week ban

Ireland flank CJ Stander has been suspended for one week after his collision with Pat Lambie at Newlands.

Stander's hearing, led by judicial officer Terry Willis, breached the nine-hour mark and was spread over two days before a verdict was reached. 

The South African-born flank knocked out the Bok flyhalf in the 23rd minute of the Test after clattering into him in an attempt to charge down a kick. Stander was subsequently red-carded.

The sanction rules Stander out of the second Test at Ellis Park, but he will be available for selection for the third Test in Port Elizabeth.
