Bath lock Charlie Ewels will be available for England's autumn international campaign after he was cleared of making a dangerous tackle during the recently concluded Aviva Premiership against Gloucester last weekend.

Citing commissioner Paul Hull cited the 22-year-old for performing a dangerous tackle on Gloucester centre Henry Trinder in the game at Recreation Ground which the Cherry and Whites went on to win 21-22.

Trinder left the field in the 47th minute and returned nine minutes later following a Head Injury Assessment.

Ewels attended a disciplinary hearing on Wednesday during which the panel found that his action did not warrant a ban.

"The panel was satisfied that an act of foul play had been committed, but concluded that this dangerous tackle did not meet the red card threshold.

"Accordingly, the citing was dismissed and the player is free to play with immediate effect."
