Panel clears Banahan and Chesney

Bath wing Banahan had a try disallowed in the defeat at Saracens

Bath's Matt Banahan and Saracens lock Kris Chesney have been cleared of foul play in the match between the sides.

Sarries ran out 20-16 winners at Vicarage Road on 15 March and in the aftermath wing Banahan was accused of body-checking Adam Powell.

But an RFU disciplinary panel decided there was nothing in the incident.

Chesney also escaped a suspension after being cited for punching Alex Crockett, with the panel deciding the yellow card he received was punishment enough.
