Exeter back row Matt Kvesic has escaped a ban after an appearance before an independent disciplinary panel on Tuesday night. 


The 27-year-old, who was recently linked with a move to Bristol Bears before they signed Northampton’s Mitch Eadie, had been cited for striking with his knee in the 74th minute of the Chiefs’ home defeat last Saturday to Sale. 

Kvesic contested the charge which was dismissed by the panel comprising Charles Cuthbert (chair), with Leon Lloyd and Mitch Read.

Cuthbert said: “The panel heard evidence from the player while viewing the video footage. With the benefit of his explanation as to how the incident occurred, the panel concluded that the incident was accidental and not an act of foul play.

“As such the citing was dismissed and the player was free to play with immediate effect.”
