    Melbourne Rebels lock Adam Byrnes’ 10-week suspension from Super Rugby has been over-turned by a SANZAR appeals committee.

    Byrnes was banned by a judiciary officer who found him guilty of dangerous play in making contact with NSW Waratahs centre Tom Carter’s eye area during the teams’ round two clash on March 2.

    But the appeals committee chaired by Nicholas Davidson has found there was insufficient proof to sustain the charge.
