Tuilagi cleared, will tour SA
London - England centre Manu Tuilagi will fly out with his team-mates for the three-Test tour of South Africa on Wednesday after his citing for a dangerous tackle was dismissed by the Rugby Football Union.
The Leicester centre was charged for a tip-tackle on Harlequins scrumhalf Danny Care during the Premiership final on Saturday.
But the RFU said in a statement on Tuesday that its three-man panel "was not satisfied on the balance of probabilities that the referee was wrong in not sending the player off."
The statement adds "Tuilagi is therefore free to continue playing and will fly out to South Africa with the England squad on Wednesday evening."
England plays South Africa in Durban on June 9, in Johannesburg on June 16 and in Port Elizabeth on June 23.
