Cheetahs No.8 Kabamba Floors has been suspended for five weeks for a dangerous tackle on Julian Huxley in his team's Super 14 loss to the Brumbies in Canberra on Saturday.

Floors was cited by SANZAR citing commissioner Scott Nowland for his 77th-minute lifting tackle on the Brumbies fullback.

Huxley, who was having his first Super 14 start since returning from a brain tumour removal, emerged from the tackle unhurt.

SANZAR judicial officer Dennis Wheelahan, QC, heard the case on Sunday and upheld the charge.

Wheelahan said he hoped the length of the ban, while consistent with previous similar offences, would act as a general deterrent, giving the increasing number of similar dangerous tackles occurring in Super 14.
