The Disciplinary Hearing was handled by Andrea Caraci (FIR) and it was accepted that Henderson’s actions warranted a red card for foul play. The incident was deemed a mid-range offence, which carries a six-week suspension.

Henderson’s clean disciplinary record, co-operation throughout the process and remorse shown warranted mitigation of fifty percent, bringing his ban to three weeks.

The Ulster lock will now miss Ireland’s Six Nations fixtures against Italy and France. H iss free to resume playing from midnight on 9 November 2020.
