Common sense has prevailed.
Rabbitohs forward Sam Burgess is free to play this weekend, after being cleared of a shoulder charge.
In our view, Burgess should never have been charged in the first place, and on this particular occasion, the NRL judiciary agreed. Burgess successfully argued that the impact was generated by the attacker, Bulldogs forward Greg Eastwood, and that the contact was made with his chest and head, rather than his shoulder.
The Rabbitohs will meet the Broncos on Friday night.
