Ewels citing dismissed by disciplinary panel

Bath forward Charlie Ewels has had his citing dismissed and is free to play with immediate effect.

Ewels is currently at a training camp in Portugal with the England squad preparing for the first match of the Old Mutual Wealth Series against Argentina.

The lock was cited by Independent Citing Commissioner Paul Hull and charged with making a dangerous tackle on Gloucester’s Henry Trinder contrary to law 10.4(e). The incident occurred in the second half of the match Bath Rugby v Gloucester on Sunday 29 October 2017.

The chairman of the panel Gareth Graham said: “The panel was satisfied that an act of foul play had been committed but concluded that this dangerous tackle did not meet the red card threshold. Accordingly, the citing was dismissed and the player is free to play with immediate effect.”

The independent disciplinary panel comprised of Gareth Graham (chairman) with Daniel White and Jamie Corsi.
