Springbok prop Dean Greyling has been suspended for two weeks after elbowing Richie McCaw in the face during Saturday night's test match.

Greyling pleaded guilty to striking the All Blacks captain during the second half of the match in Dunedin, but he will miss just one Rugby Championship match, Newstalk ZB reported.

Greyling was given a yellow card over the incident.

All Black coach Steve Hansen labelled it "a cheap shot'' while Bok coach Heyneke Meyer apologised to McCaw on behalf of his team.

The All Blacks won the game 21-11.
