Free to play.
Munster captain Peter O’Mahony is free to play following a judicial review, which dealt with the two yellow cards he received in the Guinness PRO14 Round 1 fixture against Scarlets at the weekend.
The Ireland flanker was shown two separate yellow cards by referee Sam Grove-White (SRU), both under Law 9.11 – Players must not do anything that is reckless or dangerous to others.
O’Mahony was sent off after receiving his second yellow card of the fixture but Munster still went on to win in dramatic fashion thanks to a last-minute penalty from youngster Ben Healy from inside his own half.
The Judicial Officer, Sheriff Kathrine Mackie from Scotland, found after referring to the methodology in the Disciplinary Rules and the application of mitigating and aggravating features, that the sending off was sufficient.
O’Mahony is available for selection on Saturday against Edinburgh.
