NRL 2019: Jazz Tevaga cleared by judiciary for Warriors clash with Souths

Warriors star Jazz Tevaga is free to play South Sydney on Saturday after successfully challenging a dangerous contact charge on Gold Coast prop Shannon Boyd at the NRL judiciary.

Tevaga, the NRL's inaugural Dally M utility of the year in 2018, faced a one-game ban if he accepted an early guilty plea, but instead beat the charge on Tuesday night.

But Melbourne winger Suliasi Vunivalu will miss Friday night's 2017 grand final rematch with North Queensland after copping a one-game ban for pulling Nick Meaney's leg in the Storm's weekend win over Canterbury on Sunday.

After also submitting an early guilty plea, Brisbane strike forward Tevita Pangai Jnr was formally outed for two matches for a late shot on Sydney Roosters playmaker Cooper Cronk.

Manly forward Joel Thompson was fined $1900 for tripping Corey Allan in the Sea Eagles' golden-point win over the Rabbitohs on Saturday.
