Ma'a Nonu-Sonny Bill Williams clash on hold

5:25 pm on 21 February 2011

The much anticipated clash between All Blacks midfielders Ma'a Nonu and Sonny Bill Williams won't be happening this week with Nonu suspended for one match after being sent off in the Hurricanes opening Super Rugby match.

Nonu was sent off in the loss Hurricanes loss to the Highlanders on Friday night after collecting two yellow cards.

He appeared before a SANZAR judicial committee this afternoon in Wellington and incurred the one match suspension which means he'll miss the Hurricanes match against the Crusaders on Saturday night.
