Ulster fullback Jared Payne will find out on Wednesday if he will serve a suspension for the red card he picked up in the Heineken Cup quarter-final to Saracens.
Payne was dismissed after just five minutes at Ravenhill by French referee Jerome Garces. Payne received his marching orders for an alleged dangerous charge on his opposite number, Saracens' England international Alex Goode, who was subsequently carried off the pitch.
European Rugby Cup Ltd confirmed that Simon Thomas, of Wales, has been appointed as independent judicial officer for the hearing, which will take place in Dublin.
