England prop Ellis Genge has escaped a citing for his altercation with Johnny Sexton in Saturday's Guinness Six Nations rout by Ireland.

Genge wrestled with Sexton under the posts as Eddie Jones' team launched a late assault at the Aviva Stadium with footage appearing to show him run his elbow across the Ireland captain's head.

For a disciplinary hearing to be triggered the offence has to be worthy of a red card but the deadline for a citing has passed, meaning Genge has no case to answer.

The combative Leicester prop came on at half-time of England's Six Nations finale in Dublin after Mako Vunipola was replaced for giving away successive scrum penalties.

Although producing a number of strong carries, the fracas with Sexton - who was lying beneath him - has been criticised on social media.
