England full-back insists it was accidental
England full-back Mike Brown has escaped a citing for his boot making contact with Conor Murray's head during Ireland's defeat at Twickenham on Saturday.
The Ireland scrum-half was left needing stitches under his eye as a result of the incident, but Brown insisted afterwards that the contact was accidental.
@dionwesty thank you! Video ref clearly showed I didn't and kicked the ball.— Mike Brown (@mikebrown_15) February 28, 2016
