SHOCKING NEWS : All Black key player has been suspended for three weeks

Jordie Barrett, an All Blacks back, was issued a three-week suspension on Wednesday after collecting a red card in the Wellington Hurricanes’ last-gasp Super Rugby win over the weekend.
Barrett was initially shown a yellow card on Saturday for a high tackle on Queensland Reds fullback Jordan Petaia, which was then elevated to a red card following a review by the television match official.

“The FPRC assessed the player’s actions as having directly contacted the head, at high speed, with high force, and while the player’s body position was always upright,” said Foul Play Review Committee chairperson Stephen Hardy in his report.

“Barrett is suspended for three weeks, up to and including March 22, 2024.”
