The Highlanders winger Lucky Mulipola has been cleared of a dangerous tackle charge by a SANZAR Judicial Officer.

Mulipola appeared before Chris Morris in Auckland last night after he was cited for a tackle on Brumbies winger Adam Ashley-Cooper in the 70th minute of the Super 14 match between the Highlanders and the Brumbies at Carisbrook on Saturday.

In making his finding, Mr Morris said that the referee had dealt with the incident on the field of play and Mulipola had been penalised.
