Jarryd Hayne has been cleared of any offence in making accidental contact with match referee Gavin Reynolds during Sundays match against the New Zealand Warriors on the Gold Coast.
More than twenty-five thousand fans crammed into Cbus Super Stadium to watch former Origin and Kangaroos star come off the bench in his debut match for the Titans against the Warriors.
Concerns about a possible Match Review Committee charge were allayed this morning following notification to Titans CEO Graham Annesley that no charges arose from the game which was played at high intensity but with great spirit between the players.
“Obviously we are pleased Neil Henry and the team can get on with preparing for a very important match against a West Tigers outfit that has showed some great form in recent weeks including a 12-point win yesterday over last year’s Premiers” Annesley said.
With both teams desperate to stay in touch with the top eight, next Saturdays Campbelltown clash could play a significant role in deciding the makeup of this year’s finals series.
The Wests Tigers are currently in 8th place on 24 points with the Titans a further point outside the Top 8 on 23 competition points.
