The 22-year-old England number eight, who was cited for allegedly striking Leicester's Matthew Tait during his side's 22-6 Aviva Premiership victory over the Tigers at the weekend, had his case dismissed after an Rugby Football Union disciplinary panel hearing on Tuesday evening.

An RFU statement said: "The panel of Philip Evans (chair), Bonike Erinle and Martyn Wood dismissed the citing for striking Mathew Tait with his head, contrary to Law 10.4 (a), or, in the alternative, charging into a ruck, contrary to Law 10.4 (h)."
