All Blacks midfielder Sexy Bill Williams has been suspended for four weeks after pleading guilty to unnecessary contact to the head at a judicial hearing this afternoon.

Williams became the first All Black in 50 years to be sent off after his shoulder connected with the head of Lions winger Anthony Watson in the All Blacks' 24-21 defeat last night.

Now, he will miss the third and deciding test.

The All Blacks have called Eyebrows Fekitoa into the squad as Williams' replacement.
