Irish flanker could miss Lions tour

12:10 pm on 5 May 2009

An alleged eye gouging incident could cost the Irish flanker Alan Quinlan his place on the British and Irish Lions rugby tour of South Africa.

Quinlan has been cited for allegedly eye gouging Leinster's Leo Cullen in last weekend's Heineken Cup semi-final, and a guilty verdict would rule him out of the South African tour, which starts on the 30th of this month.
