South Africa lock Eben Etzebeth is free to play against England on Saturday after being cleared of eye-gouging against Scotland last weekend.

A disciplinary hearing examined footage of an incident in the second half of South Africa's 21-10 win at Murrayfield involving the second row and Scotland fly-half Greig Laidlaw.

The Springbok lock was cited for allegedly making contact with the "eye or eye area" of Laidlaw.

The South African Rugby Union announced the verdict on their official Twitter page, saying: "Good news on Eben Etzebeth - he's not guilty and free to play against England on Saturday."
