All Black scrum-half Aaron Smith has been suspended for one Test by the New Zealand coaching staff.

The star New Zealand number nine was suspended on Wednesday after breaching team standards regarding behaviour, according the All Blacks Twitter account. 

Smith broke protocol after being caught taking a female friend into the bathrooms at the Christchurch Airport.

The scrum-half accepted his punishment after senior players within the side decided how he should be penalised.
