Anthony Mullally will not face any disciplinary action following his tackle on St Helens winger Ade Gardner, who suffered a bad injury during Monday's Super League match at the John Smith's Stadium.

The Huddersfield prop was penalised and put on report by referee Richard Silverwood following the challenge that left the ball-carrying Gardner unconscious shortly before half-time.

The game was held up for eight minutes while medical staff administered oxygen to Gardner who was carried from the field on a stretcher with his head in a neck brace.

Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson told a post-match press conference that Gardner had fallen into Mullally's tackle after losing his footing on the newly-laid turf.

And, on Tuesday, the Rugby Football League's match-review panel agreed with Anderson.

A statement issued by the RFL read: "The player makes a legitimate attempt to tackle by wrapping his arms around his opponent who falls significantly into contact."

The 29-year-old Gardner recovered quickly in the dressing room at half-time and was able to travel back to St Helens on the team coach.

A St Helens spokesman said he "will be monitored" and will need to pass the regulation medical tests before being considered for Sunday's home game against Bradford.
