Flanker O’Brien available for third Test after hearing
Sean O’Brien is available for selection in The British & Irish Lions’ third Test against New Zealand after an independent judicial committee dismissed his citing.
After reviewing video evidence, player testimony and legal submissions, the committee decided not to uphold the complaint against O’Brien.
O’Brien said: “Firstly, I hope Waisake is OK. I’d like to thank the panel for carefully considering the case and I am looking forward to re-joining the whole squad to prepare for the final Test.
British & Irish Lions Head Coach Warren Gatland added: “We’d like to thank the panel for their professional and diligent approach. Sean is a tough but fair player and we are pleased that the panel dismissed the citing.”
