Louw off the hook

Springbok and Bath flank Francois Louw has been cleared of punching by an RFU judiciary.

Louw received a red card and was subsequently cited following an incident in a Premiership game between Bath and Leicester last Saturday.

The matchday referee ruled that Louw had transgressed the laws of the game, and the citing commissioner clearly felt the flanker deserved further punishment.

But it has since been confirmed that Louw will not be subject to suspension, and the citing has been dismissed.
