A citing complaint against Saracens' Michael Rhodes arising from Leinster's Heineken Champions Cup quarter-final defeat against the English side has been dismissed.

The Saracens flanker was cited after Saturday's match for allegedly striking Leinster and Ireland centre Robbie Henshaw with his head two minutes into the fixture.

But an independent disciplinary hearing has dismissed the complaint after hearing evidence from Rhodes and his legal representative via video conference and while the committee ruled that he had committed an act of foul play, "it was not proven to the required standard that contact had been made to Henshaw's head." 

The EPCR added: "The Committee concluded that the act of foul play did not warrant a red card and the citing complaint was therefore dismissed."
