England winger Mark Cueto is free to line up against Australia in Sydney after he was cleared of making a dangerous tackle on Berrick Barnes.

Cueto was called before an independent disciplinary hearing on Sunday after being cited for an incident in the fifth minute of the 27-17 defeat to the Wallabies in Perth.

However New Zealand judicial officer Peter Hobbs dismissed the charge after reviewing all the evidence.

England boss Martin Johnson, who also attended the meeting alongside Cueto and elite rugby director Rob Andrew, said: "It is was good news that Mark got off his citing this morning."
