Ospreys forward George Stowers has been cleared after being cited for a high tackle during last Friday's league victory over the Scarlets.

The complaint against Stowers was heard by a RaboDirect Pro12 disciplinary panel in Dublin on Wednesday.

The three-man group accepted Stowers' explanation that he was attempting to dislodge the ball from a Scarlets player and decided not to uphold the citing complaint.
