Cian Healy will face a two-week suspension from rugby following his citing against Toulon in the Champions Cup. The ban is a result of Healy engaging in "foul play", as illustrated by the clip below:

Initially Healy was cited for striking with the knee, which could potentially have carried a suspension of up to a year. The offence has been downgraded to "foul play", meaning Healy will miss this weekend's gave against Toulon in the Aviva Stadium and the derby against Munster the following weekend. Owing to previous offences, Healy will be unable to reduce the length of the ban by appeal.
