Australian flanker Rocky Elsom had his appeal against a one-match suspension for pulling down at a lineout upheld at a Sanzar Appeal Committee hearing in Durban on Thursday.

News 24 reports the decision cleared him to be available for selection for the Tri-Nations match between Australia and South Africa in Johannesburg on Saturday.

Elsom had been suspended for one match by a Sanzar Judicial Committee after being cited for pulling down Springbok lock Victor Matfield at a lineout in Saturday’s Tri-Nations Test in Durban.

However a three-man Appeals Committee decided to set aside the suspension. Chairperson Bruce Squire QC of New Zealand said he would give the reasons for the decision at a later date.

Elsom appeared at the teleconference hearing – which was hosted in Durban – along with Australia coach Robbie Deans and attorney John Pammenter SC.

The three-man panel was completed by Jannie Lubbe SC of South Africa and Dennis Wheelahan QC of Australia.

  • what’s with the cloak-and-dagger “I will reveal my reasons later” bollocks?

    Smacks of clearing him to play, while buying time to come up with a reason
