London - A charge of foul play for allegedly kicking an opponent has been dismissed against Springbok wing Bryan Habana.
Habana was cited under Law 10.4C, for allegedly kicking France wing Vincent Clerc during the Boks' 20-13 loss in Toulouse.
At a hearing at a Heathrow Airport hotel Habana pleaded not guilty to the charge, which carries a minimum one-week suspension according to the International Rugby Board (IRB) regulations.
Judicial officer Lorne Crerar from Scotland took just over an hour to dismiss the case. Local solicitor Owen Eastwood represented Habana.
Springbok media manager Anthony Mackaiser confirmed the outcome of the hearing.
Habana will now be able to take his place on the wing against Italy and also Ireland at Croke Park next week.
