Blues lock Filo Paulo's Super Rugby season is over - he's been suspended for five weeks following a punching incident in the North versus South match in Dunedin on Sunday.

Paulo was playing for the North team when he was cited for a punch on South lock Tom Donnelly of the Crusaders.

Paulo was one of four players cited following a fracas 32 minutes into the first half of the match, which the South won 32-24.
