Fergus McFadden has received a three-week suspension following an incident during Leinster’s defeat of Connacht last week.
The winger was cited for a stamp on Connacht's Nathan White in the eighth minute of the game and was handed the suspension at a PRO12 hearing in Scotland this afternoon.

Leinster Rugby confirmed, "McFadden accepted that he had committed an act of foul play and that it would have warranted a red card.
"Accordingly, the Disciplinary Committee, chaired by Pamela Woodman, alongside Roddy Dunlop and John Kirk (all from Scotland), considered what would be the appropriate sanction."
As a result, McFadden will miss the province’s trip to face Ospreys in the PRO12 this weekend as well as their Champions Cup games against Bath and Wasps later in the month.
