VIDEO: Cian Healy could be in big trouble for this stamp

The prop’s actions caused a massive dust-up at Lansdowne Road.

TEMPERS FLARED IN the first half of Ireland Six Nations clash against England at Lansdowne Road.

Irish prop Cian Healy took exception to an English forward not rolling away and got stamping. He will almost certainly face the citing commissioner for this offence.

It created a mini brawl on the pitch as Ireland struggled to match England’s early intensity in the 12-6 victory for the visiting side.

Speaking to RTÉ about the incident after the game, Irish coach Declan Kidney said, “I saw a lot of English bodies over the ball, a lot of times. I didn’t see anything.”
