Judiciary update: Tino Fa'asuamaleaui

Titans captain Tino Fa'asuamaleaui has been cleared by the NRL Judiciary after being placed on report in the 17th minute of the Titans' Round 15 win against the Tigers.

Facing a nervous wait overnight as he prepares to enter Origin camp in a bid to help wrap up the series with the Maroons, the enforcer was found to have no case to answer by the match review committee and will be available for the blockbuster at Suncorp Stadium on Wednesday, June 21.

NRL match review coordinator Luke Patten said it was important to note that the injury sustained by Koroisau was only a factor if the match review committee believed an offence had occurred.

"The match review committee assessed the contact carefully," Patten told

"The panel felt that Tino Fa’asuamaleaui was not leading with the forearm or the elbow, and the ball-carrying arm was tucked against the chest to secure the ball coming into contact with the defending player.

"The contact from Fa’asuamaleaui is made with the lower part of the forearm, tucked against his chest at the time of contact.

"The Judiciary Code references a charge not being proven if the ball carrier only defends himself by shielding his body from the impact of a tackle, as opposed to leading with the forearm or elbow in a tackle situation.

"As a result the panel decided the actions were not careless and did not warrant a charge."

Chris Randall served his one-match ban on Thursday night and will be available for selection in Round 17, after the Gold Coast have their third and final bye next weekend.
