STANLEY GENE is clear to play at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats on Friday (7.30)!
The 30-year-old Papua New Guinean was placed on report for illegal use of the elbow during the 14-8 weekend Super League defeat at Warrington Wolves.
Disciplinary chiefs have now viewed the incident on video and ruled he has no case to answer, meaning he can face the Wildcats.
That's good news for Giants coach Jon Sharp, whose side then host Salford City Reds on Easter Monday (7.30).
Sharp knows he needs as many players as possible available for the punishing Easter schedule, and is delighted that will include Gene.
"My initial reaction of the Stanley incident was that he raised his elbow to protect his face," said Sharp, who has already had four players placed on report and then subsequently cleared.
"That was a view shared by the RFL disciplinary and we're obviously delighted by the outcome.
"At this very hectic stage of the season you need as many bodies as possible available. Two games of Super League in four days is a real tough ask.
"To have lost Stanley over something like this would have been very disappointing.
"But, once again, we've been cleared of an on-report call."
Sharp is hopeful all those who played at Warrington will be fit to play over the Easter period.
Several players are struggling with bumps and bruises after what was a very physical Warrington clash.
The major doubt is Paul Smith, who is still suffering the effects of a heavy bang to the head.
The challenge that felled the forward was one of several contentious incidents.
Video evidence appears to back up Giants' claims that they had two good `tries' disallowed, although club officials refuse to be publicly drawn into the debate.
