Tour Manager Andy Irvine

“The British & Irish Lions are very pleased with the outcome of today’s judicial hearing in Brisbane.

The Judicial Officer, Nigel Hampton QC, was extremely fair and thoroughly considered all the facts of the case in great detail.

We always believed that Cian had done nothing wrong and had not acted maliciously in any way.

The decision was important to the player’s and indeed squad’s integrity as the allegation was a serious one.”

Cian Healy

“I am very relieved that the hearing has cleared me of such an allegation. I was naturally very disappointed that there was a citing in the first place.

I always maintained that nothing happened and that I had done nothing illegal. The opposition player’s arm hit me. It is as simple as that.

The support I had from the management and all the lads was wonderful and I am glad that it is all over.”
