London - Ireland international Cian Healy will discover on Wednesday whether his two-week ban for foul play will be upheld or not.

The 28-year-old prop was cited for a clash with Toulon's Guilhem Guirado during Leinster's 24-9 defeat in France on December 13.

Healy was initially charged with kneeing the French international hooker although that wasn't proven and the charge was amended by World Rugby to: "dangerous charging or obstructing or grabbing of an opponent without the ball, including shouldering".

Healy appealed against the amended charge, allowing him to play in the return European Champions Cup fixture in Dublin on Saturday, which Toulon won 20-16, thus eliminating Leinster from the competition.

His appeal hearing will take place by video conference on Wednesday.

If unsuccessful he will miss Celtic League matches against Munster and Connacht.
