Waratah Horne suspended for two matches

NZ Newswire April 22, 2012, 7:51 pm

NSW centre Rob Horne has been suspended for two Super Rugby matches for his lifting tackle on Melbourne fullback Kurtley Beale.

Horne was cited by SANZAR for his dangerous tackle in Saturday night's 30-21 win, which sparked a series of tweets from Queensland counterparts Digby Ioane and Quade Cooper, who claimed their Wallabies teammate should be rubbed out for a lengthy period.

In discussions with the Waratahs on Sunday, the SANZAR judicial officer initially gave Horne a four-week suspension, but that was scaled back to two because of his good record and an early guilty plea.
