JAMES SMALL, the South Africa wing, was cleared of intentional foul play by a New Zealand RFU judiciary hearing yesterday. Small was cited by the Waikato Rugby Union after a flying tackle on Steve Gordon during the tourists' 38-17 victory on Saturday. In the same game Krynauw Otto, a reserve lock, bruised his sternum and cracked his cheekbone in three places, and yesterday became the fourth South African to be forced home through injury.
