Cian Healy banned for three weeks for leg stamp on Dan Cole

Prop Cian Healy has been suspended for three weeks for a leg stamp on Dan Cole during Ireland's 12-6 defeat by England in the Six Nations at the weekend. He will miss Ireland's upcoming matches against Scotland and France.

In what was a typically fierce battle up front, Healy's aggression appeared to be channeled incorrectly as he stamped down on opposition prop Dan Cole's leg. Cole was penalised, but Healy wasn't spotted by the officials, despite it causing a bit of a melee.

He was also involved in a swinging arm incident not too long afterwards, on England captain Chris Robshaw, but that wasn't picked up by referee Jerome Garces either.

The 25-year-old Leinster man was cited after the match, and today appeared before an independant Six Nations disiplinary committee in London. More details to follow.

The below video shows the incidents, as well as a discussion with former England centre Jeremy Guscott, former Ireland hooker Keith Wood, and former Welsh wizard Jonathan Davies.

What do you think of the three week suspension?
