Springboks flanker Schalk Burger will be free to play for Western Province in the Currie Cup semi-final.
Burger was cleared of foul play after being cited for a late tackle on JP Mostert during the second half of Province's 43-18 victory over Pumas on Saturday.
Following a hearing on Monday, when Burger was cleared of the charge, he will be available for Province's semi-final against the Golden Lions at Coca-Cola Park in Johannesburg. In the other semi-final the Sharks host the Cheetahs in Durban.
