Ireland prop Cian Healy has been suspended until March the 10th for stamping on England tighthead Dan Cole.

The ban means the Healy will miss the next two rounds of the Six Nations Championship.

A three-man Six Nations disciplinary committee gave Healy a three-week ban that doesn't come into effect until after this weekend.

Healy stamped on Cole at a ruck in the 14th minute of England's 12-6 win at Lansdowne Road on Sunday, sparking a mass brawl.

He will miss Ireland's away match against Scotland and the home game against France on March 9.

He will be available for the trip to Italy on the final weekend.
