Brumbies hooker Josh Mann-Rea has escaped with a one-match Super Rugby suspension for punching Stormers prop Oli Kebble.

Mann-Rea was sent from the field for the incident, in which he punched Keeble twice in the face in the 64th minute of the Brumbies' 31-11 loss in Cape Town on Sunday morning (AEDT).

The 35-year-old reserve hooker avoided a second week on the sideline after receiving a 50 per cent deduction for pleading guilty.
