Stormers lock suspended for Lions game

3:51 pm on 13 June 2012

The Stormers lock Rynhardt Elstadt has been suspended for one game by the SANZAR judiciary following a hair-pulling incident in the side's win over the Bulls in Pretoria.

Elstadt made contact with Akona Ndungane's hair and continued holding his hair as they went to ground, for which he received an off-field yellow card.

That was Elstadt's third yellow for the Super Rugby season and he's been suspended from all forms of the game for the week up to and including June the 30th, which rules him out of the next Stormers match against the Lions.
