Parramatta forward Nathan Brown will be available for the Eels' first finals game after taking an early plea for a hit on Canterbury's Dallin Watene-Zelezniak on Thursday night.

Brown was charged and handed 350 points as a base, although an early plea would have reduced his points total to 262, meaning he would only have to serve a two-match ban.

Brown will miss the Eels' clashes with the Broncos and Sea Eagles over the next fortnight, but will be eligible for selection on the opening weekend of the finals.
