A single point separated the sides as a hard-fought 5th-8th place play-off finished in France's favour at Stade Henri Desgrange on Tuesday night. Check out some photos from Ireland's fourth IRB Junior World Championsip match.
The hearing took place in Ravenhill, Belfast at 4.30pm today (Wednesday) and was heard under a disciplinary committee chaired by Hugh Logan. He was assisted by Stephen Hilditch and Neil Jackson.

The committee imposed a two-week suspension starting from today (Wednesday, April 8) up to and including Wednesday, April 22.
The player has the right to appeal the decision.
The suspension rules Sexton out of Leinster's Heineken Cup quarter-final clash against Harlequins this coming Sunday and their Magners League trip to Edinburgh on Friday week (April 17).
