Scotland centre Tom Philip escaped punishment by a Six Nations disciplinary panel here Thursday even though they ruled that his high tackle on Ireland captain Brian O'Driscoll in last weekend's clash was dangerous. But the fact that no ban has been imposed means Philip is clear to play for Edinburgh in their European Cup quarter-final against French holders Toulouse on April 10. Philip's challenge on O'Driscoll took place during Ireland's 37-16 Triple Crown clinching win here at Lansdowne Road on Saturday, a result that condemned Scotland to the wooden spoon after they lost all five of their Six Nations games this season. However, the incident was missed by match officials and prompted Ireland chiefs, whose side finished second in the table behind Grand-Slam winners France, to cite Philip. But, after meeting on Wednesday, a disciplinary committee comprising of Paul Mauriac (France), Terry Vaux (Wales) and former England prop Jeff Probyn said in a statement issued Thursday they did not believe a suspension was justified as the incident was only worth a yellow card. "The committee upheld the citing complaint and judged that, although the tackle was considered dangerous within the meaning of Law 10.4. (e), they believed that the tackle was made recklessly rather than with intent," the statement said. "In our view, referees deal with this type of tackle by issuing a yellow card. In such circumstances, we do not feel that any suspension would be appropriate."
