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.
