Tom Denton will find out his fate on Friday regarding a citing from last weekend's clash with Cardiff Blues.

A disciplinary hearing by an independent RaboDirect PRO12 Disciplinary Committee will be held in Dublin tomorrow.

The Leinster second row was cited by the independent Citing Commissioner for a dangerous tackle in the RaboDirect PRO12 clash at Cardiff Arms Park last Friday.

Denton has been cited for violating the law that reads: “Lifting a player from the ground and dropping or driving that player into the ground whilst that player’s feet are still off the ground such that the player’s head and/or upper body come into contact with the ground is dangerous play.”
