London Irish forward George Stowers has avoided suspension following his sending-off against Aviva Premiership rivals Bath last Saturday.

No.8 Stowers was dismissed by referee Dave Pearson following a dangerous tackle on Bath full-back Nick Abendanon during the second-half of a game Irish lost 20-13 at the Recreation Ground.

Stowers appeared before Rugby Football Union disciplinary officer Judge Jeff Blackett at a hearing in Epsom. And Blackett decided the red card was sufficient punishment, meaning 31-year-old Stowers is free to continue playing.
