Munster Rugby have confirmed that they have appealed the four-week suspension handed down to Paul O’Connell at last Thursday’s ERC independent disciplinary hearing in Dublin.
An independent ERC disciplinary committee gave Paul O’Connell a four-week suspension, following on from the red card he received for an incident involving the Ospreys’ Jonathan Thomas during Munster’s Heineken Cup win at Thomond Park on December 12.
Munster Rugby now wait on the ERC to issue a date for the hearing.
At things stand, O’Connell is unavailable for Munster’s Magners League derby clash with Connacht on St. Stephen’s Day, their New Year’s Day showdown with Ulster and another home league tie with Glasgow Warriors on January 8.
