Following the accusations that Glasgow flanker Ryan Wilson had grabbed the testicles of opposition scrum-half Lee Dickson during his side’s 19-15 defeat to Northampton Saints on the weekend, the Scotsman has not been found guilty.

As reported by the BBC, 26-year-old Wilson pleaded not guilty to the accusation after the proposed incident occurred at a scrum during the 25th minute of the game on Sunday.

However, the judicial officer Simon Thomas, who oversaw the hearing stated that he was:

not satisfied to the required standard that the act of foul play as alleged had been committed.

Had the Glasgow star been found guilty then a suspension lasting a minimum of 12-weeks would have been waiting for the flanker however he is now free to play.

Both players gave evidence of the incident during the hearing to Thomas, whilst Glasgow rugby operations manager John Manson, the Warriors’ legal representative Bruce Caldow and EPCR disciplinary officer Liam McTiernan also submitted to the case.

The proposed suspension would not have affected Wilson’s availability to play in this year’s RBS Six Nations after the flanker was omitted from Vern Cotter’s squad although there is now the possibility that he may now be called up should injuries heavily affect the squad.
