Bath lock Danny Grewcock is available for England's vital trip to the Stade de France on Sunday after being censured but not cited for an alleged stamp on Llanelli fly-half Mike Hercus.
Television cameras spotted the former Coventry second-row making contact with Hercus in the second half of Bath's 27-26 Powergen Cup semi-final defeat to the Scarlets.
It is not often the game's disciplinary authorities come down on Grewcock's side - he has been sent off or cited six times - but after reviewing the video evidence citing commissioner Ken Pattinson decided to issue a warning for reckless use of the boot.
No further action will be taken and Grewcock is free to continue preparing for England's RBS Six Nations Championship clash with France in Paris, a match Les Bleus head coach Bernard Laporte described as "more like a boxing fight than a chess game".
But England, who need to shunt their campaign back on the rails after an 18-12 defeat to Scotland two weekends ago, will be without Leicester hooker George Chuter after he was cited for allegedly stamping on Wasps opposite number Raphael Ibanez.
Chuter, an unused replacement at Murrayfield, will appear before a disciplinary panel in London on March 14. Under Six Nations regulations he is suspended from international rugby until then, though he can play for Leicester against Leeds on Friday.
With the disciplinary hearing taking place just four days before England take on Ireland at Twickenham in the final round of Six Nations games, Chuter is unlikely to involved again in the championship.
His suspension opens a place for Bath hooker Lee Mears, who was on the bench for England's victories over Wales and Italy.
Mears' inclusion is likely to be one of very few other changes head coach Andy Robinson makes to the squad for the trip to France.
The team is announced this lunchtime and Bath prop Matt Stevens could return in place of Julian White after recovering from a shoulder strain.
But, after that defeat at Murrayfield, speculation has roared furiously over the make-up and balance of England's back row and particularly whether Lawrence Dallaglio should be included alongside, or at the expense of, captain Martin Corry.
Mike Tindall's role at inside centre and Ben Cohen's form on the wing have both been questioned over the last week, but Robinson is not minded to make wholesale changes.
"No, I don't think there will be any major changes," he said. "We are the only team to win away from home in the championship (after beating Italy). We know that going to France is a tough place to play but we have the ability to beat them."
Robinson's chief frustration following the defeat to Scotland was England's inability to translate possession and territory into points. It is not a new complaint. England failed to kill of New Zealand last November and the All Blacks held on for a narrow victory despite being reduced to 13 men at one point.
At Murrayfield, England blew a number of clear over-laps. When Jamie Noon and Josh Lewsey broke through the Scottish defence they were left isolated, and when Cohen was presented with a golden try-scoring opportunity he spilled the pass.
"Our ability to finish was the biggest problem," explained Robinson.
"We created three or four, possibly more chances to score. It was a case of getting that one try and then I think potentially the floodgates could have opened.
"I was really pleased with some of the ambition that we showed and that's something we have to take into the France game.
