Melbourne Rebels lock Ross Haylett-Petty has been suspended for three weeks for a dangerous tackle during their tight Super Rugby AU win over the Western Force.

Haylett-Petty was red-carded late in the match, with the 14-man Rebels managing to hang on for a 10-7 victory.

Haylett-Petty struck Force substitute Tomas Lezana in the head with his shoulder as he went in to tackle.

He will miss Friday night's AAMI Park clash with the Waratahs followed by a clash with the Queensland Reds and then a home meeting with the Force.
