Horwill cleared of stamping – again
- 02 Jul 2013
Wallabies captain James Horwill will play in the series decider against the British & Irish Lions in Sydney.
After more than 13 hours of deliberation, IRB-appointed judicial officer Graeme Mew found there was no reason to overturn the decision that Horwill had not intentionally stamped on the head of Lions second rower Alun Wyn Jones during the first Test in Brisbane on 22 June.
The IRB released a statement accepting the decision.
'While ultimately not proving successful in its appeal, the IRB is satisfied that it took the right approach. The IRB would like to acknowledge the professional manner in which the Australian Rugby Union managed the process as host union of the tour.'
