Australian flanker Dean Mumm escapes punishment for tip tackle on Tadhg Furlong
Australian blindside flanker Dean Mumm is free to take on England this weekend after an independent disciplinary committee found that his offence did not warrant a red card.
Mumm was sin-binned in the first half of the Wallabies’ 27-24 defeat to Ireland at the weekend for a lifting tackle on Irish tighthead Tadhg Furlong.
We was sin-binned by ref Jerome Garces and was cited by independent citing commissioner Peter Larter.
At the hearing today in London, accepted that he had committed an act of foul play but asserted that it would not have warranted a red card and the committee agreed and therefore did not impose any sanction.
