Highlanders utility forward Jarred Hoeata has received a one-week ban after he pleaded guilty for receiving three yellow cards during Super Rugby this season.

Highlanders utility forward Jarred Hoeata has received a one-week ban after he pleaded guilty for receiving three yellow cards during Super Rugby this season.

SANZAR judicial officer Jannie Lubbe has accepted the guilty plea from Hoeata for contravening Disciplinary Rule 6.1 of the SANZAR Judicial Rules by receiving a third Yellow Card in the 2013 Super Rugby tournament.

Hoeata received the third Yellow Card during the Super Rugby match between the Highlanders and Crusaders played at Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin on Saturday.  

Hoeata has been suspended from all forms of the game up to and including 8 July 2013.

Lubbe ruled the following: "Having reviewed video footage of the three yellow card incidents and after careful consideration of the submissions made on behalf of the player, the player was offered a one week suspension which was accepted.

"The player was represented by Mr Aaron Lloyd who made able and helpful submissions on the question whether any further sanction should be imposed on the player," Lubbe added.

The news of Hoeata's ban comes at a horrible time for the Highlanders after centre Ma'a Nonu received a three-week ban for a dangerous tackle in the same game as Hoeata's third yellow card.
