Kuridrani banned, out of Super Rugby final

Former Wallabies centre Tevita Kuridrani has been suspended for a tipping tackle, ruling him out of the Western Force's Super Rugby final against the Brumbies.

Former Wallabies star Tevita Kuridrani will miss the Western Force's historic Super Rugby AU preliminary final after being suspended for a dangerous tackle.

Kuridrani received a yellow card during last Friday night's finals-sealing 30-27 upset win over the Queensland Reds for a tipping tackle on Hunter Paisami.

He was cited for alleged foul play for the second-minute offence, with the citing commissioner deeming the tackle had met the red card threshold for foul play.

The SANZAAR foul play review committee found Kuridrani guilty via a video-conference hearing and suspended the centre for three games.

Former All Black Richard Kahui is likely to replace Kuridrani in the starting line-up against the Brumbies in Canberra on Saturday night.

The Force have made the playoffs of a Super Rugby competition for the first time in their 16-year existence.

The winner of the Brumbies-Force match will face the Reds in the final on May 8 at Suncorp Stadium.
