Lipman escapes ban for stamping

6:02 am on 4 December 2008

The England flanker Michael Lipman has escaped a ban after being cited for stamping during last weekend's 32-6 loss to the All Blacks at Twickenham.

Lipman appeared at an International Rugby Board hearing today.

The panel upheld the citing for foul play but concluded the player's actions did not warrant a red card and imposed no further sanction.
