Ireland flanker Sean O’Brien has been sanctioned by the IRFU following an incident that occurred in a Dublin bar the day after Leinster’s win over Glasgow in the Guinness PRO14 final last month.

A union spokesman today said to Independent.ie:

"The IRFU have investigated an incident of inappropriate behaviour by a player which occurred on 26th May 2019. The player has expressed his deep regret and has been sanctioned in line with the provisions of his contract. The player has apologised to the individual involved. The IRFU, and the player, regret any upset that this incident has caused."
