Super Rugby player suspended for 6 weeks for midair kick

SYDNEY (AP) Highlanders player Tevita Nabura has been suspended for six weeks for a kung fu-style kick in midair to an opponent’s head in a Super Rugby match.

Nabura leaped into the air to catch a kick in the Highlanders’ game against New South Wales Waratahs last weekend, then stretched out his right foot and connected with Waratahs wing Cameron Clark on the side of his face.

Nabura was sent off in the game, which New Zealand’s Highlanders lost 41-12.
