Not guilty: Richard De Carpentier

Worcester flanker Richard De Carpentier was found not guilty of making contact with the eyes or eye area of Northampton's Calum Clark.

De Carpentier was cleared of the eye gouging charge, brought after Worcester's 33-10 Aviva Premiership defeat at the weekend, at a Rugby Football Union disciplinary hearing on Wednesday.

"Richard De Carpentier is free to play on after the citing case against him was dismissed by an RFU disciplinary hearing tonight," a statement read.
