Suspended: Cian Healy

Ireland prop Cian Healy has been banned until March 10 for stamping on Dan Cole's ankle during Sunday's defeat to England.

The 25-year-old will now miss the Six Nations trip to Scotland on 24 February and the home game against France on 9 March after being handed the suspension at a disciplinary hearing in London on Wednesday.

Healy trod on Cole's ankle after an Ireland maul had collapsed in an incident which was missed by referee Jerome Garces.

Although he was handed a three-week sentence, in effect the Leinster loosehead will serve a four-week ban since his suspension does not date from last Sunday's clash in Dublin, but only begins this weekend.

The Six Nations Disciplinary Committee decided that the player would not have played for his province this weekend and that the suspension will end at midnight on Sunday, March 10.
