WORCESTER Warriors fly half Andy Goode has escaped further punishment following his sending off against Leicester Tigers at Welford Road on Friday.
The former England and Leicester man was shown a red card by referee Wayne Barnes after a dangerous tackle on Tom Croft in the first half before Warriors went on to lose 43-13.
But at an RFU disciplinary hearing on Sunday, the panel decided not to punish Goode any further, saying the offence was at the 'low end of seriousness', while taking into account the player's remorse and past record.
The fly half will now be available to play in Warriors' final three games of the season, including the side's next tie against Exeter Chiefs at Sixways on Saturday, April 14.
Head coach Richard Hill said: "We are obviously pleased that Andy will be available for selection for the remainder of the season and the manner in which the case was dealt with by the disciplinary panel."
