The citings of Bath duo Dan Hipkiss and Michael Claassens, for foul play, have been dismissed.

The citings of Bath duo Dan Hipkiss and Michael Claassens, for foul play, have been dismissed.

Hipkiss was cited for a 'tip tackle' on Jamie Gibson and Claassens for kicking  Matthew Garvey during last Saturday's Premiership Round Four match against London Irish at the Madejski Stadium.

The panel comprised Nick Dark, Mike Curling  and the RFU Disciplinary Officer, Jeff Blackett.

"On review of the DVD the panel determined that Dan Hipkiss did not drop or drive Jamie Gibson's head and/or upper body in to the ground," Blackett said.

"Dan Hipkiss tackled Jamie Gibson such that he landed on his back, so that the elements of Law 10.4.J were not made out.

"The panel determined that the contact between Michael Claassens and Matt Garvey was a clumsy collision.

"Michael Claassens' movements were defensive and he made contact with knee and arms. He did not kick Matt Garvey. In the circumstances, an offence under 10.4.C is not made out."
