Josh Reynolds cleared to play State of Origin II
Josh Reynolds will be free to play State of Origin II after having his dangerous throw charge downgraded at the judiciary on Thursday evening.
The New South Wales five-eighth was initially handed a grade two charge following his lifting tackle on Queensland's Brent Tate in Wednesday's Origin I at Lang Park, which the Blues won 12-8.
Reynolds pleaded guilty but was successful in having the charge reduced to a grade one offence, meaning he is available for selection for Origin II on June 18 at the Olympic stadium.
He will not miss any club matches for Canterbury either, as he only received 93 demerit points as a result of the downgrading.
Bulldogs chief executive Raelene Castle, who attended the judiciary hearing with Reynolds, says the club is relieved the playmaker avoided suspension.
