British and Irish Lions prop Healey cited for biting

British and Irish Lions prop Cian Healy will face a disciplinary hearing on
Thursday over allegations he bit Brett Sheeham during their 17-69 victory
over the Western Force.

Healy was cited for “acts contrary to good sportsmanship” after Force
scrumhalf Brett Sheehan complained he was bitten in the 17th minute of the game
in Perth.

The Leinster forward will attend a judicial hearing on Thursday evening in
Brisbane, where the Lions are scheduled to play the Queensland Reds on Saturday.

Previous sanctions for biting have been heavy but Healy could be facing a spell
on the sidelines anyway after being stretchered off with suspected ankle ligament
damage.

The Lions’ have revealed that X-rays showed Healy had not suffered a broken
bone but the ankle needed further assessment.
