Fotuaika cleared at judiciary, free to play Cowboys

Titans prop Moeaki Fotuaika has been cleared to play in round three after successfully fighting a dangerous contact charge at the judiciary via video link.

Fotuaika was handed the Grade 1 charge over an incident involving Eels halfback Mitchell Moses in the 30th minute of their round two clash on March 22. He is now free to play against the Cowboys next Friday.

Elsewhere Eels forward Nathan Brown will miss the next two rounds of the Telstra Premiership after pleading guilty to a dangerous conduct charge back in March.

Brown earned the ire of the match review committee after colliding with Dale Copley at Cbus Super Stadium during Parramatta's round-two win.

Knights fullback Kalyn Ponga had accepted a one-match suspension for a shoulder charge in Newcastle's win over Wests Tigers in round two.
