Sanctioned.

Leinster and Ireland flanker Sean O’Brien has been “sanctioned in line with the provisions of his contract” following an unsavoury incident in a Dublin pub following the province’s PRO14 final win last month.

O’Brien is alleged to have urinated on a member of the public in a busy Dublin pub the night after Leinster’s win over Glasgow Warriors.

“The IRFU have investigated an incident of inappropriate behaviour by a player which occurred on 26th May 2019.” an IRFU spokesman today said to Independent.ie

“The player has expressed his deep regret and has been sanctioned in line with the provisions of his contract. The player has apologised to the individual involved. The IRFU, and the player, regret any upset that this incident has caused.”

The 32-year-old has already played his final game for Leinster as he gets set to join London Irish after the World Cup – a tournament he will miss out on as he gets set for hip surgery.
