No further sanction for Du Preez

Edinburgh forward Cornell Du Preez has escaped further sanction after being accused of striking Munster's Paul O'Connell.

An independent disciplinary panel in Dublin decided that the yellow card issued by referee Wayne Barnes during Edinburgh's Heineken Cup defeat at Thomond Park on Sunday was sufficient punishment for the incident.

The complaint was made by Frenchman Yves Thieffine, the match citing commissioner.
