T Rhys Thomas: Dragons captain cleared of alleged bite
Newport Gwent Dragons captain T Rhys Thomas has been cleared of a charge of allegedly biting an opponent.
The 33-year-old hooker was accused of biting Castres flanker Thomas Caballero in the second half of Dragons' 31-18 Challenge Cup win on Friday.
Thomas is now available to face Sale in their final Pool 5 match on Thursday.
A hearing held in London on Wednesday found that: "The Judicial Officer was not satisfied that the act of foul play as alleged had been committed."
Dragons are top off Pool 5 and assured of a quarter-final place going into their clash with Sale.
