Nonu given 3 weeks for tip tackle

6:02 am on 1 July 2013

The Highlanders centre Ma'a Nonu has been suspended for three weeks after he was sent off for a dangerous tackle during Saturday's night's Super Rugby loss to the Crusaders.

Nonu was red carded in the 58th minute for a tip-tackle on Crusaders winger Tom Marshall.

Nonu accepted his guilt, and had a week taken off his sentence.

That is his last Super Rugby match of the season.
