Lions lock Hines banned for one game

British and Irish Lions lock Nathan Hines has been banned from the playing in the second Test against South Africa for a dangerous tackle on Wilhelm Steenkamp in Tuesday's 13-13 draw with the Emerging Springboks.

The first Lions player to be cited on the tour, into its eighth game of 10, the Scotland second row was suspended for a week which means he will not play in the second Test at Pretoria on Saturday but will be available for the third at Johannesburg July 4.

He has 24 hours to appeal.

Hines was not selected for last Saturday's first test in Durban, where South Africa won 26-21 to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series, but was hoping for a spot at Pretoria, at least on the bench.
