All Blacks captain Kieran Read is in the clear at the Rugby World Cup after the tournament citing commissioner opted not to review his no arms tackle against Canada.

It was a decision that has caused protests of All Black favouritism among fans of the other nations contesting the RWC.

At the RWC, World Rugby has taken a low tolerance approach to shots to the head.

Australian Reece Hodge, Samoa's Rey Lee-Lo and Motu Matu'u, USA's John Quill and Uruguay's Facundo Gattas have had three-week bans for dangerous tackles.

In Rugby World Cup matches today, Australia will face Uruguay at 5.15pm while England will face Argentina at 8 o'clock tonight.

Samoa will also clash with Japan at 10.30 tonight.

The All Blacks face Namibia at 4.45pm tomorrow while France and Tonga clash at 7.45pm tomorrow.
