Highlanders Aaron Smith has been found not guilty of foul play after being cited for dangerous tackle on Blues’ Toby Morland last Friday.

Smith received a yellow-card for the incident and attended a hearing on Monday.

SANZAR hearing found the citing could not be made because Smith was not primarily responsible for lifting and dropping or driving Morland to the ground.

It was concluded that another Highlanders player had played the dominant role in the incident.

Smith is now free to play against the Chiefs in Hamilton this weekend.
