Queensland Reds second-rower Harry Hockings has been suspended for three weeks after being found guilty of stomping on the head of a Sunwolves' player.

Hockings was red carded for the offence in the 76th minute of the Super Rugby game that saw six cards brandished by referee Angus Gardner.

The Reds won 32-26 as the Sunwolves finished the game with 12 players.

The 20-year-old was looking at a six-week ban but Hockings' youth and clean judicial record saw the sentence halved by the SANZAAR judicial committee on Monday.

Hockings will miss games against the Rebels, Waratahs and Chiefs.
