Sharks scrumhalf Rory Kockott has been handed a one-week ban for striking Highlanders flank Adam Thompson during their Week 11 encounter in Durban last Saturday.
Kockott was represented by lawyer Stephen Weyers and Sharks team manager Trevor Barnes and the case was heard by SANZAR Judicial Officer Advocate Dekker Govender.
Kockott pleaded guilty to the charge of striking Thomson in the 76th minute of the match, for which he was red-carded by match referee Phillip Bosch.
The defence argued that a red card was sufficient punishment. The judicial officer ruled that although Kockott’s action was not a punch, it was a reckless, open-hand slap and imposed a one-week suspension up to and including May 9.
The suspension means Kockott misses the Sharks’ Super 14 match against the Waratahs in Durban on Saturday.

Kockott has arguably been one of the players of the tournament so far if not the player of the tournament.

Kockott's been outstanding in the game - he's certainly scored me plenty of points - gutted I'm losing him this week.

Deserved a ban though, that was a cheap shot at Thomson.
