Harlequins No.8 Nick Easter has escaped further punishment for his sending off against Munster in the Amlin Challenge Cup.

The England international was shown two yellow cards by French referee Romain Poite during the 20-12 semi-final victory at Thomond Park.

However Easter will has now been cleared to play in the Aviva Premiership clash with Saracens, as well as the Amlin Challenge Cup final against Stade Francais.

After reviewing the evidence, independent judicial officer Roger Morris has deemed that that Easter's dismissal was punishment enough for the offences.
