Exeter scrum-half Will Chudley is free to play in the Aviva Premiership final
The Chiefs man was cited for alleged kick to the head of Joe Launchbury
The Case was dismissed late last night
Exeter Chiefs scrum-half Will Chudley is free to play in Saturday’s Aviva Premiership final against Saracens after a citing charge against him was dismissed last night.
Chudley was cited for kicking, contrary to law 10.4(c) following the weekend’s Aviva Premiership semi-final between Exeter and Wasps for allegedly kicking Joe Launchbury.
The panel concluded that the contact to Launchbury was caused as a result of Chudley’s knee being deflected off the thigh of Matt Mullan. It was therefore deemed not reckless and the charge was dismissed.
The panel comprised of John Doubleday, Nick Dark and Daniel White (chairman).
