KIERAN MARMION IS free to play for the Ireland Wolfhounds this weekend after ERC bosses decided against a ban today.

The Connacht scrum half was cited for an incident which occurred during the defeat to Saracens in the Heineken Cup last weekend.

The citing was upheld but the offence was deemed ‘not worthy of a red card’.
