    over and done with, unless the IRB appeals the sentence!!

    note they got the victim's name wrong - Cian Barry not Cian Healy.
    And Normanby not Normandy

    Exeter and Wales prop Craig Mitchell has been given a six month suspended sentence following an incident in a Brisbane bar after the British and Irish Lions' victory last weekend.

    The 27-year-old was arrested on Sunday morning after knocking lawyer Cian Barry unconscious at the Normanby Hotel.

    Mitchell was fined $1,800 and ordered to pay the victim $3,000 compensation.

    He has since apologised but Mr Barry says Mitchell should have been jailed.
