Ulster Rugby lock Iain Henderson will miss Ireland's first test back in the Six Nations due to suspension.
The 28-year-old has been banned for a period of three weeks as a result of his red card in the Guinness PRO14 Round 2 fixture with Ospreys Rugby on 10 October 2020. Henderson was shown a red card by referee Mike Adamson (SRU) under Law 9.20 – Dangerous Play in a ruck or maul.
He will now miss Ireland's remaining two Six Nations' matches against Italy and France.
The Disciplinary Hearing was handled by Andrea Caraci (FIR) and it was accepted that the Player’s actions warranted a red card for foul play. The incident was deemed a mid-range offence, which carries a six-week suspension.
The Player’s clean disciplinary record, co-operation throughout the process and remorse shown warranted mitigation of fifty percent, bringing his ban to three weeks.
The Player is free to resume playing from midnight on 9 November 2020.
