Justin Harrison suspended for three matches for racial slur

Australian and Waratahs lock Justin Harrison has been suspended for three Super 12 matches for his racial slur against Cats winger Chumani Booithe Cats in South Africa last weekend.

The three match penalty will include the one-match Harrison voluntarily stood down from against the Stormers in Sydney last night. He will miss matches against the Bulls and Crusaders both to be played in Sydney.

Harrison was fined $20,000, but will escape the penalty if he completes an anti-discrimination course run by the anti-discrimination board of NSW and 30 hours of community service.
