Josh Jackson free to play in Origin III

NSW forward Josh Jackson is free to play in the State of Origin decider after successfully having his dangerous throw charge downgraded at the NRL judiciary on Wednesday night.

The Canterbury second-rower was hit with a grade two dangerous throw on Penrith five-eighth Jamie Soward in the first half of their clash last Saturday night.

But the judiciary panel agreed to reduce the charge to grade one, meaning Jackson will miss this Monday’s match against Melbourne but be available for selection for the Blues when coach Laurie Daley names his team on Tuesday.

Game III will be played in Brisbane on July 8.
