Canterbury second rower Josh Jackson has been cleared to face the Cowboys this weekend after successfully challenging his dangerous contact charge.

Jackson risked a two-week ban after a high shot on Raiders playmaker Aidan Sezer, although Jackson successfully appealed, arguing the contact was to the chest before the head, and the hit was not as late as first thought.

Jackson has played every game for the Bulldogs this season, and will line-up in the back row on Saturday.


    • Rules for some and not for others. What about Simms high tackle on Reynolds last week? Reynolds had to go off for a head test (can’t remember what you call it) meaning it was a high tackle. I’m sure there are others go unpunished.

  1. If Sam Burgess collared a defenceless halfback late and high like that, he’d be slandered as a thug by everyone and be out for the next 6 weeks

  2. What a frigging JOKE, late and Head high, and deliberate
    It should have been a Grade 3

    If Burgess is worth 2 weeks then this fool should be serving at least 4 weeks.

  3. Even as a dogs supporter the judiciary is way to inconsistent.

    You arer better off rolling the dice and hoping for the best
