Munster A face Plymouth Albion at Waterford's Regional Sports Centre this Friday in the British and Irish Cup (ko 7:30pm).
Both offences were deemed to be "mid-range" but the WRU professional disciplinary panel, chaired by Terry Vaux, gave Holah a two-week ban last Tuesday after mitigating factors were taken into account.
However, not surprisingly, the Ospreys appealed the decision and tonight at the Millennium Stadium, a WRU professional disciplinary panel, chaired by Roger Morris, upheld the Ospreys' appeal.
It's a significant outcome as Holah is a hugely influential figure in the Ospreys team and would have been a bigger loss to them than either Lee Byrne or Shane Williams.
Ospreys: Barry Davies; Tommy Bowe, Andrew Bishop, James Hook, Richard Fussell; Dan Biggar, Mike Phillips; Paul James, Richard Hibbard, Adam Jones; Ryan Jones, Alun Wyn Jones; Jerry Collins, Marty Holah, Jonathan Thomas. Replacements: Mefin Davies, Duncan Jones, Craig Mitchell, Ian Gough, Justin Tupuric, Jamie Nutbrown, Sonny Parker, Nikki Walker.
