ALL Blacks hooker Andrew Hore has been handed a five-week ban after striking Wales second row Bradley Davies in an off the ball incident during Saturday’s match in Cardiff.
He will now miss the All Blacks’ final autumn Test against England on Saturday.
The ban could have been eight weeks but was reduced because of his “acceptance of guilt, genuine remorse, exemplary disciplinary record and his conduct during the hearing”.
