Blue Bulls fly-half Mornč Steyn has been suspended for one week of rugby after being found guilty by a SARU Judicial Officer on Tuesday.
Steyn was cited for allegedly breaching law, 10.4 (a), which deals with the striking of an opponent with, for instance the arm, following the Blue Bulls' semi-final clash against The Sharks in Durban.
Judicial Officer Louis Booyse suspended Steyn from all forms of rugby until 28 October 2012.
Blue Bulls player Mornč Mellett was cited for tripping Sharks fly-half Patrick Lambie, contrary to law 10.4 (d) in the 29th minute of the same match. Booyse found that the yellow card issued was sufficient punishment under the circumstances.
