London Welsh wing Dan Caprice has seen his citing for a dangerous tackle on Saints counterpart Jamie Elliott dismissed.
Caprice hit Elliott high and late during Welsh’s 23-16 defeat at Franklin’s Gardens last Saturday, earning himself a yellow card in the process.
Elliott was not injured in the tackle and picked himself up off the floor as referee David Rose sent the Welsh man to the sin bin.
Independent citing officer John Byett’s report landed Caprice in further trouble and he had his case heard at a disciplinary hearing in Coventry on Tuesday night.
But the panel, comprising His Honour Judge Jeff Blackett (chair), Jeremy Summers and Roger Goodier, dismissed the case and Caprice is free to play again immediately.
