Martin Castrogiovanni will miss Italy's next Six Nations fixture against Ireland

Martin Castrogiovanni has received a two-week ban for stamping during Saturday's 36-20 defeat by Scotland.

The 34-year-old, capped 118 times for Italy, came on as a second-half substitute and appeared to direct a stamp towards Duncan Taylor's foot.

The suspension was given at a disciplinary hearing on Wednesday where the forward admitted to the offence.

Castrogiovanni will miss Italy's next Six Nations game against Ireland in Dublin on Saturday, 12 March.
