That is a very welcome decision by the panel. It means that George is available for selection for upcoming games and that is a big bonus for Bristol.

As for the defeat at Sarries, that is past. One could make complaints that, as the scores were close at the time of the incident, we may have gained point(s) from the match. However, let's assume that we would have lost but gained a try scoring bonus. So one point lost but Smith available and firing on all cylinders means we now have a better chance for winning four pointers than if he had been suspended.

I'm not a lover of TV technology in any sport. Sporting contests are won and lost on mistakes by players and referees/umpires. The TV worked against us but at least the panel had the courage to overturn it and not just rubber stamp a referees decision.

Onwards and upwards to Glaws and another blood curdling match and atmosphere.
