Worst spear-tackle of the season found NOT gulity – How does that work ?

In what appeared to the uneducated observer of ‘wall to wall’ rugby the worst spear tackle of the season, diminuative Highlanders half back Aaron Smith appears to have recieved a get out of jail card !

The NZPA reports Highlanders reserve halfback Aaron Smith is clear to face the Chiefs in a Super rugby match on Saturday after a Sanzar judicial hearing found him not guilty of foul play today.

Smith was sinbinned for the role he played in a tackle on Blues replacement halfback Tony Morland in the 76th minute of the Highlanders’ 15-10 loss at Carisbrook on Friday night.

Sanzar judicial officer Nigel Hampton QC, after hearing evidence, found that the citing could not be made because Smith was not the player primarily responsible for lifting and then dropping or driving Morland to the ground.

Hampton, who viewed additional video evidence concluded that another Highlanders player involved in the tackle had played the dominant role in lifting and dropping Morland.
