A statement from RFU disciplinary chiefs said: "Following very careful analysis, the panel found that Mr Barrington had not committed the act of foul play alleged.
“The incident arose out of the specific dynamic of Mr Parling falling unconscious into what would have otherwise been a legitimate contact by Mr Barrington.
"In line with the new sanctions a mid-range entry of six weeks was imposed on Mr Barritt reduced to three weeks in light of mitigation including his guilty plea."
