Australian rock Darcy Swain has been handed a six-week suspension after ruling out New Zealand center for nine months for a charge to the knee of Quinn Tupaea.

Swain, 25, slammed his shoulder into Tupaea’s leg as the All Blacks battled an injury in the Australian final. Lost 39-37 to Melbourne September 15th.

Sansar judged the incident to be “unintentional” and “extremely reckless.”

Swain has been named to Australia’s A-team for three games against Japan in October.

He is now eligible to play in these matches for this weekend’s rematch against New Zealand in the final round of the Rugby Championship and the Wallabies’ tour matches against Scotland and France on 29 October and 5 November respectively. There is none.

Swain received a yellow card for the incident on the field, but officials decided he deserved a red card and sent it for review after the game.

“Darcy is not happy with the result. [of what he did] “He was punished,” said Australian coach Dave Rennie.

New Zealand were very critical of Swain’s clearout.

All Blacks coach Ian Foster said his team had a “big problem” with it.

Playmaker Beauden Barrett said Tupaea was a “sitting duck”.

“It was a bit of a free shot. We don’t like seeing these kinds of injuries,” he added.
