Moody struck Beale with an elbow - way in front of a teammate carrying the ball - to the throat, just before scoring a try. His attack on Beale created the gap through which a teammate ran to set up the try.
The match officials overlooked the incident but the prop was cited after the game and was subsequently handed a two-game suspension. The light slap on the wrist got Anton 'Worms' van Zyl and Morgan Newman questioning the sanctions handed to New Zealand players and also what sanctions, if any, will be handed to all the match officials involved.
