Melbourne Rebels forward Luke Jones will miss his team's next two Super Rugby matches due to suspension for a dangerous lifting tackle on Bulls winger Bjorn Basson.
Jones was shown a yellow card for the goal-line defensive tackle made during Friday's 41-35 Rebels loss to the Bulls at Melbourne.
SANZAR judicial officer Mike Heron imposed the ban Sunday, saying he'd taken into account Jones' clean record, guilty plea and his immediate concern for the uninjured Basson in reducing what would have been a four-match ban.
However, Herron said that "tip" tackles remained a cause for concern in Super rugby and suggested harsher penalties could be introduced for them.
It was the sixth citing for tip tackles this year in Super Rugby matches.
