South Africa's star flank, Bath-based openside Francois Louw, has been cleared on a punching charge by a Rugby Football Union disciplinary hearing.
Louw is one of several players who faced the RFU hearing, but the only one to be cleared - with the rest handed a range of bans, from one to five weeks.
Louw appeared before an RFU disciplinary hearing after receiving a red card for punching or striking an opponent, contrary to Law 10.4 (a), in the 12-17 Premiership loss to Leicester Tigers last Saturday, December 1.
The citing was dismissed in its entirety, suggesting that the referee had erred in sending Louw off in the first place, or at the very least that the incident warranted a lesser penalty.
The Panel comprised Christopher Quinlan, Nick Dark and John Brennan.
