Mitchell fails to get Super Rugby ban overturned

Melbourne Rebels winger Lachlan Mitchell has failed in his appeal against a one-match suspension for lifting British and Irish Lions winger Simon Zebo.

Mitchell was found guilty of lifting Zebo in the Lions’ 35-0 win over the Rebels on June the 25th.

The Rebels and the Australian Rugby Union said Monday that Justice Lex Mpati of South Africa, who heard the appeal by video conference on July 3, upheld the original finding.

Mitchell will serve the one-match  ban in the final Rebels Super Rugby match of the season Friday against the Highlanders in Melbourne.
