Highlanders wing Kurt Baker will have to wait until round 15 before he can play in Super Rugby again.

Baker has been suspended for six weeks for a dangerous lifting tackle on Rebels halfback Nic Stirzaker.

The ban will see Baker on the sideline until the 17th of May.

The SANZAR Judiciary added two weeks to the suspension length as a deterrent for the lifting tackle.
