Ireland’s O’Driscoll cited for stamping Italy flanker

Potential British and Irish Lions captain Brian O’Driscoll has been cited for stamping on Italy flanker Simone Favaro during the Six Nations match in Rome.

O’Driscoll was sin-binned for the offense in the 30th minute of Saturday’s match, which Italy won 22-15, and could face further punishment.

The 34-year-old O’Driscoll, one of Ireland’s greatest players, was competing in perhaps his last game for his country, although he is likely to be picked in the British and Irish Lions squad for the tour to Australia in June and July.
