Sunwolves back Jamie-Jerry Taulagi was handed a five-week ban Monday for a dangerous tackle in the 83rd minute of Saturday’s 27-20 loss to the Chiefs in Hamilton, New Zealand.

SANZAAR — the body that runs Super Rugby — said in a press release that Taulagi, who was shown a red card for using his shoulder to strike the head of Shaun Stevenson, pleaded guilty to “contravening Law 10.4(e) Dangerous tackling of an Opponent.”
