Australia lock Sitaleki Timani has been suspended from Saturday’s international against Wales in Cardiff after pleading guilty to striking an opponent.

Timani caught prop Andrea Lo Cicero with his forearm 
during a first-half scuffle in the Wallabies’ 22-19 win against Italy last Saturday.

He connected with Azzurri hooker Leonardo Ghiraldini with the same blow.

International Rugby Board’s judicial officer David Martin deemed the offence to be at the lower end of the scale and banned Timani until midnight on 2 December.
