All Black Barrett banned for three weeks for red card

Barrett pleaded guilty to a risky tackle on Wallabies captain Michael Hooper which earned him a red card just before halftime of Saturday's Test in Perth, won 47-26 by the hosts.

All Blacks lock Scott Barrett will miss Saturday's Bledisloe Cup decider against Australia after receiving a three-week ban for a shoulder charge during New Zealand's loss to the Wallabies last weekend.

But the Sanzaar judicial committee reduced the punishment, citing Barrett's early guilty plea, remorse and exemplary disciplinary record.

"Barrett has been suspended from all forms of the game for three weeks, up to and including Sunday, 1 September", it said in a statement released Tuesday.

Barrett, a near certainty for New Zealand's squad to defend the World Cup in Japan, will miss a couple of potential provincial fixtures but will return in time for a pre-tournament Test against Tonga in Hamilton on September 7.

Patrick Tuipolutu is favoured to be promoted to pack down alongside Sam Whitelock at Eden Park, where New Zealand need to win to retain the silverware.

Meanwhile, England coach Eddie Jones has labelled Barrett's red card as "ridiculous", and called on World Rugby to be consistent after he claimed two Welsh players escaped the red cards penalties following similar offences against England on the weekend.
