The WRU Professional Disciplinary Panel held a hearing this evening following a citing complaint against Cardiff Blues prop Gary Powell for an alleged breach of Law 10.4 (b) Dangerous Play (Stamping or Trampling).
The illedged incident happened during the second half of the Blues's Magners League match against the Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium on New Year's Day.
The citing was not upheld, with the panel deciding the offence would not have justified a sending-off.
No sanction was therefore appropriate and the player is free to play with immediate effect.
