About right... RT @brendanfanning: 3 weeks for Cian Healy

My sources (aka a journalist I follow on Twitter) say Cian Healy has been handed a three week ban for his stamp on Dan Cole #rugbyunited

As much as Cole was in the wrong place, nothing justifies stamping. 3 week ban justified for Cian Healy, who let his temper get the better.

Cian Healy given a three week ban. Misses the Scotland and France games. Big chance for Dave Kilcoyne to stake his claim in both. #IRFU

Shocked that Cian Healy only got a 3-week ban...that was a nasty nasty challenge. I thought it deserved a longer ban than that

How come the guys on the RTE rugby panel (and citing commish!) ignored #CianHealy going into that ruck with fists swinging in 2nd half!?

And a couple who tweeted him directly to let their feelings be known.
