The Ireland Under-19 squad to face Australia Schools at Ravenhill on Saturday week (December 14) has been announced.
Ireland lock/flanker Trevor Brennan is one of three Toulouse players to have been cited for foul play in their side's Heineken Cup defeat to Ulster last Saturday.
Brennan, who started in the second row for his 31st appearance for Toulouse in the competition, along with Omar Hasan and Salvatore Perugini, two of the former champions' props, are all in the firing line after Scotland's Iain Goodall, acting as the ERC-appointed Citing Commissioner, lodged his report from the Ravenhill tie.
In total, five players - Ospreys lock Brent Cockbain and Cardiff Blues winger Mosese Luveitasau - have been cited for incidents which occured over the course of the Heineken Cup's opening round.
Each player is to appear by an independent Disciplinary Committee, with the hearings to be conducted as soon as possible.
The aforementioned citings cover both Friday and Saturday's round one games, while the 50-hour citing window for matches played on Sunday closes today.
