A hearing into biting allegations against British and Irish Lions prop Cian Healy has been postponed until Friday.

A hearing into biting allegations against British and Irish Lions prop Cian Healy has been postponed until Friday, the Australian Rugby Union said.

Irishman Healy was cited after Western Force scrumhalf Brett Sheehan made an on-field complaint to the referee during the first half of the Lions' 69-17 win against the Super Rugby team in Perth on Wednesday.

Sheehan claimed he was bitten on the arm but said later he was unsure whether it was accidental or deliberate.

Video footage shown during the match of the incident was inconclusive.

Healy was initially due to appear before a judicial hearing late Thursday in Brisbane after the team flew in from Perth for their next game against the Queensland Reds on Saturday.

The Leinster prop's tour is also in doubt after he suffered suspected ankle ligament damage in the match against the Force.

Lions coach Warren Gatland has called up England prop Alex Corbisiero as cover.
