Hindmarsh to play, Geddes outed

Parramatta backrower Nathan Hindmarsh has escaped a one-match ban after taking the early guilty plea for a grade one dangerous throw. Hindmarsh was charged by the NRL match review committee following the Eels' 46-12 win over Newcastle on Saturday night, but will be free to play the New Zealand Warriors this weekend.

The only other player to be charged during round 18, South Sydney prop Scott Geddes, has copped a one-match suspension for a grade two careless high tackle, and will miss the Rabbitohs game against Manly.
