Australia captain James Horwill says he has been 'vindicated,' after a appeal over an alleged stamp on Wales second row Alun Wyn Jones was dismissed.
He has now been cleared to play in the series decider on Saturday.
Horwill stood on Jones' head in the opening minutes of the first test between the British and Irish Lions and Australia. Jones needed stitches to a wound above his eye.
A disciplinary hearing held 24 hours later concluded that on the balance of probabilities there was no act of foul play. The International Rugby Board announced on Thursday that it was appealing.
Independent appeal officer Graeme Mew upheld the original judgement and said that only a major error during the original hearing would warrant the 'not guilty' verdict being overturned.
