Waratahs forwards Matt Dunning and Rocky Elsom have both been suspended for their involvement in a fight during their team’s 17-26 loss to the Bulls in Pretoria.

Elsom received a four-week suspension from a SANZAR tribunal in Johannesburg while Dunning was given a one-match ban.

This means that Dunning will miss the Waratahs’ first home match of the season against the Sharks at Aussie Stadium.

The pair were cited for punching. Elsom joined the punch up late so he earns a heavier sentence.

The Bulls forwards Johan Wasserman and Jaco Engels will learn what their punishment on Tuesday for involvement in the punch up.

Waratahs coach Ewen McKenzie appeared as a character witness for both his players.
