South African winger Breyton Paulse has been handed a three-week suspension after being found guilty of kicking Australian prop Al Baxter during the 22-19 Tri-Nations win over the Wallabies.

The incident happened in the 77th minute, leaving Baxter with an abrasion to his face.

Paulse was cited by the independent citing commissioner after the incident was not seen by the referee or the touch judges.

Paulse told the judicial committee he had kicked out at Baxter, but that he did so at frustration from being held illegally and without any intention to inflict injury.

Paulse said the contact was to the shoulder/upper neck area, but Baxter claimed the kick struck him just below his right eye.
