Australia will have star man David Pocock available for their quarter-final with Scotland after he wasn't cited for a knee to Wales hooker Scott Baldwin.

Pocock was caught on camera dropping a knee into the chest of Baldwin, who was lying on the ground and had been holding onto Pocock's leg to prevent him from leaving the ruck.

Neither the officials or the TMO spotted the incident but there were calls on social media for Pocock to be cited for dangerous play.

However with the 36-hour window following the Test for citings to be made having now closed, Pocock will be free to play.

Pocock was forced off with a calf injury in the second half of Saturday's 15-6 win over Wales at Twickenham but should be fit for this weekend.
