O’Brien Waiting On Citing Decision

The Irish rugby squad is still waiting for an update from Sean O’Brien’s disciplinary hearing. The flanker traveled to London today where he’s hoping to avoid a suspension, after he was cited for striking France lock Pascal Papé during last Sunday’s Pool D match. There appears to be better news in relation to the fitness of Johnny Sexton. We’re still awaiting confirmation, but the out-half has reportedly been given the all-clear following scans on a suspected adducter muscle injury.
