DISCIPLINARY UPDATE: Ireland’s Peter O’Mahony will appear before an online disciplinary panel on Tuesday.

O’Mahony was shown a straight red by referee Wayne Barnes after he elbowed Tomas Francis in the head during Ireland’s 16-21 defeat to Wales.

The incident occurred in the 13th minute of Ireland’s opening match.

The needless mistake sees O’Mahony being the first Irish player to be sent off in a Six Nations match.

The flank’s red card could see him be suspended for next Sunday’s match against France in the Aviva Stadium, and possibly the round three game in Rome against Italy a fortnight later.
