Munster skipper Peter O'Mahony will be available for the club's second round of Pro14 game against Edinburgh after he was cleared to play following an independent review.

The 31-year-old was sent-off during the previous game against Scarlets after receiving two yellow cards by referee Sam Grove-White in the 23rd and 68th minutes for a breach of Law 9.11 that deals with dangerous tackles.

Despite his absence, Munster went on to win the game against Scarlets 30-27 and are positioned third in Conference A.

The Ireland international appeared before the Judicial Officer Sheriff Kathrine Mackie (Scotland) but was cleared of the charges.

The judicial officer, Kathrine Mackie of 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. The player is available for selection on Saturday," read a statement from Pro14.
