TJ Ioane joined Sale in January 2015 after playing for Super Rugby side Highlanders

Sale Sharks have been cleared of any wrongdoing by the Concussion Management Review Group (CMRG) for an incident involving back-row forward TJ Ioane.

He fell to the floor after an attempted tackle on flanker Dave Ward in Sale’s loss at Harlequins on 7 January but played on for the rest of the game.

The 27-year-old Samoan was not treated on the field but was assessed by the Sale team doctor after the tackle.
