Rugby-Lions flanker O'Brien cleared of foul play, free to play third test

WELLINGTON, July 2 (Reuters) - British and Irish Lions flanker Sean O‘Brien has been cleared to play the third and final test against the All Blacks at Eden Park next Saturday after being cleared of dangerous play during the second match in Wellington.

O‘Brien was cited after the Lions’ 24-21 second-test victory at Wellington Regional Stadium on Saturday for a swinging arm on All Blacks winger Waisake Naholo, which was not dealt with by the on-field officials at the time.
