Scotland get double boost

Ross Ford and Jonny Gray have had their appeals upheld and are available to play against the Wallabies on Sunday.

The duo had received three-week suspension for acts of foul play contrary to Law 10.4(j) (dangerous tackles).

Having conducted a detailed review of all the evidence, including new submissions from the players and their representatives, along with all available camera angles, the appeal committee dismissed the finding that the players had committed an act of foul play as the player had not been dropped or driven and therefore the tackle was not dangerous.

The players are therefore free to play in their side's World Cup quarter-final at Twickenham.
