The chief executive Cameron George has confirmed the 20-year-old second-rower will miss Saturday's game in Auckland as punishment for what he described as a "low-range" offence.

George didn't give a date for the incident, which doesn't appear to have attracted a police charge.

"We expect better from our players and anyone who falls short of our standards will be appropriately dealt with irrespective of the time of year or their standing within the club," George said in a statement.
