Iain Henderson cited over incident during Friday's Pro14 clash with Ospreys

Just as he was making his way back to fitness, the Ulster lock faces another spell on the sidelines.

ULSTER AND IRELAND forward Iain Henderson has been cited for an incident involving Sam Cross during last Friday’s Pro14 win against the Ospreys. 

Henderson is accused of a dangerous ruck clearout in the 15th minute of the game, in which he appeared to neck-roll Osprey’s Sam Cross. 

A disciplinary committee will meet in Edinburgh tomorrow to decide Henderson’s punishment. Any suspension will further curtail his involvement in the Six Nations, having already missed the opening two rounds of the championship through injury. 

Elsewhere, Joe Schmidt’s second-row options were bolstered with confirmation that Tadhg Beirne has joined Munster team-mate Chris Farrell in linking up with the Irish squad this week. Like Henderson, Beirne has been absent from the Six Nations thus far through injury.
