James Horwill has been found not got guilty of stamping in a disciplinary hearing. He will be free to play in the second Test against the British and Irish Lions.

Judicial officer Nigel Hampton accepted Horwill was driven off balance with leg raised and didn’t know AWJ was underneath him.

“I could not find that when James Horwill’s right foot came into glancing contact with Alun Wyn Jones’ face, Horwill was acting recklessly”

Here’s the footage, what do you reckon?
