British and Irish Lions prop Cian Healy's hearing to answer a charge of biting an opponent during his side's win over the Western Force on Wednesday has been postponed.

The Ireland international was originally scheduled to face the hearing in Brisbane on Thursday after he was accused of biting by Force scrum-half Brett Sheehan in the first half of the Lions' 69-17 victory.

The hearing has since been pushed back to 9:00am (AEST) Friday.

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.

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