Munster loosehead John Hayes has been given a six week suspension following his sending off in the Munster Leinster clash last weekend. Hayes received the red card for a stamp on Leinster's Cian Healy in the 54th minute of the Magners League game. An IRFU disciplinary hearing into the incident was held at Ravenhill this evening and confirmed that the offence constituted a high end entry level in terms of sanctions. The panel imposed a six week suspension from the date of the offence up to and including Saturday Mov. 14th. John Hayes has the right to appeal the decision.
