Wallabies second-rower Sitaleki Timani has copped a one-week suspension for striking Italian prop Andrea Lo Cicero Vaina and will miss this weekend's clash with Wales in Cardiff.
The giant NSW Waratahs back-rower pleaded guilty to the striking charge with the process in Bristol on Wednesday taking less than one hour.
Timani struck the Italian front-rower with a forearm in the 13th minute of last weekend's 22-19 win over Italy in Florence.
Kane Douglas is expected to take Timani's place in the starting side for Australia's European tour finale.Douglas is returning after suffering a knee injury in the opening game of the tour against France three weeks ago.
