Parramatta's finals hopes have received a boost with backrower Nathan Hindmarsh cleared of a dangerous lifting tackle on Dragons forward Ashton Sims.

Hindmarsh was placed on report for the 38th-minute tackle in last night's 14-6 loss St George Illawarra at WIN Stadium, prompting fears the Eels could lose their key man for Sunday's vital match against Brisbane.

But the NRL match review committee has confirmed Hindmarsh has no case to answer.
