Butch cleared for Tigers tussle

Butch James has been found not guilty on charges of stamping and will play in Bath’s European Cup play-off against Leicester.

James was charged with an alleged stamp on Wasps centre Riki Flutey during the Premiership match on 1 April. If he was found guilty, James could’ve been banned for between two and nine weeks.

The Bok flyhalf will now get the opportunity to face the Tigers at the Walkers Stadium for the quarter-final clash on Saturday.

Leicester prop Julian White was however found guilty of punching England team-mate Andrew Sheridan and will be out for two weeks.
