Following a Six Nations Disciplinary meeting held today in London, Munster flanker Denis Leamy has, not surprisingly, been cleared of a charge of stamping in the game against Italy.

Leamy and his international skipper Brian O'Driscoll were both fingered by the Italians for alleged stamping. It was O'Driscoll who seemed the most culpable in Italian eyes with their captain Marco Bortolami quoted as saying, "I don't know if Brian O'Driscoll will be cited but I hope he is because he deserves to be. He clearly stamped on Fabio's Ongaro head when the ball was not there. That is not acceptable. He does not need to do this. He is a great player but he has let himself down and he should be punished accordingly."

However, match commissioner Rob Flockhart, somehow felt that it was Leamy who had a case to answer and the flanker accompanied by Eddie O'Sullivan and Brian McLaughlin travelled to London on Wednesday for a hearing that cleared Leamy of any wrong doing.
