An independent ERC disciplinary committe today handed Paul O’Connell a four week suspension.

The hearing held this morning in Dublin arose from an incident in the game last Sunday against Ospreys that saw O'Connell red carded.

The red card was issued to O'Connell in the 69th minute of the second half by referee Christophe Berdos (France) for striking the Ospreys player Jonathan Thomas (No 8) in contravention of Law 10.4 (a).

Afterwards Team Manager Shaun Payne expressed disappointment with the outcome but said that Munster would wait on receiving the written judgment before deciding on an appeal.
