Chiefs captain Sam Cane is free to face the Western Force this weekend after being cleared of a dangerous tackle by the SANZAAR judiciary.

Cane was cited for a hit on a Jaguares prop in Sunday's match in Buenos Aires.

But a judicial hearing has found the flanker not guilty, with SANZAAR saying it was an unfortunate combination of Cane joining to create a maul in a permissible manner at the same time as his opponent fell rapidly to the ground.
