London - France flanker Kevin Gourdon was cleared by World Rugby on Tuesday after being cited for a dangerous shoulder charge in the 38-18 loss to the All Blacks.

The incident took place at the start of the second half of Saturday's game in Paris.

A three-person disciplinary committee decided there was no foul play by Gourdon on Saturday in Paris, and dismissed the complaint by the World Rugby citing commissioner.

Gourdon was free to play for France, who meet the Springboks on Saturday.
