James cleared of stamping charge

Butch James
James has been a key part of Bath's success this season

Bath fly-half Butch James has been found not guilty of stamping on Wasps' centre Riki Flutey by the RFU disciplinary panel.

The decision means the South African will now be available for the Heineken Cup quarter-final against Leicester on Saturday at The Walkers Stadium.

He was cited in Bath's 22-14 victory on 1 April and was in danger of missing the remainder of the season.

But the panel found there was no case to answer and no sanction needed.
