Round 15 at the Judiciary
Brisbane prop Petero Civoniceva has been given the green light to play for Queensland in the third rugby league State of Origin match after escaping a charge from the NRL match review committee.
Civoniceva was sin-binned for his part in the 69th-minute brawl in the Broncos' 48-18 win over the Wests Tigers at Suncorp Stadium on Monday.
The NRL today said there were no charges laid from the match. Prop Mark O'Meley will serve a one-match ban and miss the Dogs clash with Cronul4la this weekend, but could still be named 18th man for the NSW Origin team early next week.
Sharks forward Cameron Ciraldo will miss two games after pleading guilty to a grade-four, careless high-tackle on South Sydney's Ben Rogers.
Rabbitohs centre Shannon Hegarty and Canberra's Glen Turner escaped suspension after pleading guilty to grade-one, careless high-tackle charges.
