Connacht's Abraham Papali'i has been hit with a four-week suspension after receiving a red card during last weekend's Guinness Pro14 Rainbow Cup defeat to Benetton.

Papali'i’ was dismissed with seven minutes remaining in Treviso by referee Gianluca Gnecchi for a high tackle.

The New Zealander has seen red in three Connacht encounters since joining the province last July, and coach Andy Friend has been vocal in his criticism of the back's tackling technique.
