Hurricanes flyhalf Beauden Barrett has escaped any further punishment after being red-carded against the Waratahs.
Barrett was shown red in Wellington last Saturday after receiving two yellow cards for two deliberate knockdowns.
In his finding, the judicial committee chairman Adam Casselden said: 'The judicial committee conducted a detailed review of all the available evidence, including all camera angles, and additional evidence from the player and submissions from his legal representative, Aaron Lloyd.
'With respect to sanction, the judicial committee ruled, after considering a number of factors, including the player's exemplary disciplinary record, that the player's ordering off merited no further sanction.
'The player is therefore free to play and will serve no suspension.'
