Leinster are facing an anxious wait to learn if they will be without Cian Healy for Saturday's game with Toulon and the busy Christmas fixture list after the prop was cited after an incident last weekend.

Healy was yellow-carded in the defeat to Toulon on Sunday when he was adjudged to have hit hooker Guilhem Guirado with his knee in the first half of the game.

Healy will attend a disciplinary hearing in Paris on Thursday.

If the incident is considered minor, Healy could be sidelined for three weeks with the most severe punishment ranging from 12-52 weeks.
