Brian O Driscoll Italy v Ireland

Suspended: Brian O'Driscoll

Brian O'Driscoll has been handed a three-week ban for stamping on Italy's Simone Favaro and is out of Leinster's Amlin Challenge Cup quarter-final.

O'Driscoll was sent to the sin-bin for only the second time in his 14-year professional career in the first half of the defeat to Italy at the Stadio Olimpico after bringing his leg down on Favaro's chest, causing the openside to yell out in pain.

Despite missing his province's clash with Wasps on April 5, he will return to Leinster duty in time for their RaboDirect PRO12 season run-in.
