England winger Matt Banahan will miss the rest of the tour Down Under after being suspended for two weeks.

Banahan was found guilty of making a dangerous tackle on Berrick Barnes in Tuesday's 15-9 victory over the Australian Barbarians.

The Bath ace was cited for 'lifting' Barnes and was subsequently suspended by a disciplinary panel in Sydney.

Banahan is now banned until June 30 - meaning he is unavailable for the second Test against Australia on Saturday and then the clash with New Zealand Maori in Napier on Wednesday.
