An IRFU investigation into "inappropriate behaviour" of a player has concluded.

In a statement today, the union has confirmed that an un-named player has been sanctioned over an incident that occurred in a Dublin bar the day after Leinster’s win over Glasgow in the Guinness PRO14 final last month.

It also says the player has apologised to the individual that was involved.

"The IRFU have investigated an incident of inappropriate behaviour by a player which occurred on 26th May 2019. The player has expressed his deep regret and has been sanctioned in line with the provisions of his contract. The player has apologised to the individual involved. The IRFU, and the player, regret any upset that this incident has caused."

Alleged details of the incident widely circulated on social media at the time.
