    Cian Healy Stamp On Dan Cole

    He has been cited:

    BBC Sport - Six Nations 2013: Cian Healy cited for stamp on Dan Cole

    ...and so he should - disgusting and he should not be picked for the Lions however - the french ref - what a joke. Pathetic.

    considering it was right in front of the ref, I found it hard to believe he did nothing at the time.
    I am not surprised at the citing, definitely should be cited for that, it was a moment of sheer stupidity/lunacy/thuggery on his part there I felt, lucky no one was badly hurt for that.

    He could have ruled himself out of the Lions with that,

    For me that should have been at LEAST a yellow...if not a red for straight up violent conduct, its worse than the red card take Warburton made in the world cup in my eyes

    1 year international ban, 3 month club ban. It will serve as a detterent for anyone else that wants to try it

    That would be nice, but at punishment level in Rugby, there is never a massive amount of consistency it seems when it comes to meeting out punishments.

    It made me angry when I saw it, and even angrier when he got away with it, because it's making players think they can get away with it so it's worth a go.

    Haskell's yellow, fair enough, every player tries something like that on with a face of innocence, he was just unfortunate enough to get caught. Healy could have ended Cole's career there though.

    Shame those 2 punches he threw at another player who was trapped in a ruck (which caused another brawl) didn't get cited or seen by the poor officials either.

    Calum Clark for Northampton got a 32 week ban when he intentionally broke someones elbow, and I think these type of players deserve similar lengthy bans - even if they don't hurt the player or do not "connect" with the punches. Thugs like these need to be taught harsh lessons.

    Disgrace to the game.
