The England and Gloucester centre appealed the original Rugby Football Union punishment which saw him kicked out of the squad and hit with a sizeable fine for his off-field World Cup behaviour.
But Tindall, whose appeal was heard by acting RFU chief executive Martyn Thomas, received backing from the Rugby Players' Association, with many people feeling he had been a scapegoat for England's World Cup woes in New Zealand, and the RFU tonight confirmed his appeal had been successful to a large extent.
A statement from the RFU read: "Mike Tindall's fine for breaches of the England elite player squad agreement during the 2011 Rugby World Cup has been reduced from £25,000 to £15,000 and he has been reinstated into the England Elite Player Squad."
