All Blacks lock Scott Barrett is still waiting to see what punishment he'll cop for his red card against the Wallabies, after the foul play committee adjourned their hearing pending further evidence.

Barrett was sent off for a dangerous tackle near the end of the first half of the All Blacks 47‑26 loss to the Wallabies in the opening Bledisloe Cup clash in Perth.

He'll likely be ruled him out this weekend's Bledisloe Cup decider in Auckland, but he could be slapped with a four week ban, which would rule him out of this week's second Bledisloe test in Auckland, the All Blacks one‑off test against Tonga and their first two World Cup pool games.

The SANZAAR foul play committee adjourned last night's hearing pending further evidence.
