Castrogiovanni to miss Ireland clash

Prop banned for stamping

Prop Martin Castrogiovanni is set to miss Italy's RBS Six Nations clash with Ireland at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday week.

The veteran front row has been banned for a fortnight for stamping on Scotland's Duncan Taylor in the 36-20 defeat in Rome.

The 34-year-old, who came on as a second-half replacement at the Stadio Olimpico, admitted the offence at a disciplinary hearing held in London on Wednesday and was issued with a fortnight's suspension.

Castrogiovanni will miss the March 12th clash with Ireland, but will be available to face Wales in the final round of games seven days later.
