In his earlier comments, Horwill said the one TV angle shown on replays was not a full reflection of the incident, when he claimed to have lost balance before making contact with Jones’ head with his right boot.
“You can slow anything down to make it look different, but if you look at the other angles, you can see what happened,” Horwill said.
“I’ve played more than 130 professional rugby games and never been cited once and never been to any judicial hearings. It was a complete accident. Unfortunately, accidents happen in rugby — it’s a contact sport. There was no intent or malice,” he added.
