Australian captain James Horwill has been cleared of stamping on Alun Wyn Jones for a second time following yesterday's IRB appeal of the original decision.

The proceedings began at 11am yesterday Irish time and a decision was due at 11pm last night but the announcement was then delayed until the early hours of this morning.

Canadian judiciary officer Graeme Mew found that there was nothing "manifestly wrong" with the original decision.

Not every Australian agreed with the clearing of Horwill though, Stephen Larkham believed the stamp was not accidental.

So there was #JusticeForHorwill in the end, just not the type that Lions fans believed was necessary.
