    Jarryd Hayne cleared by NRL judiciary of headbutt; free to play in Origin II

    Parramatta fullback Jarryd Hayne has been cleared by the NRL judiciary for a headbutt on Melbourne Storm's Billy Slater, freeing him to play in State of Origin II.
    Hayne was cleared after the three man panel deemed his contact to the head of Slater - who was on Tuesday chosen at fullback for Queensland - not significant enough to cause injury.

    It is not yet known where Hayne will line up for the Blues, with NSW selectors to convene at the conclusion of Luke Lewis' hearing into a dangerous throw charge before naming the final 17 to take on Queensland at Suncorp Stadium on Wednesday week.

    "I'm just very, very, very happy - it pretty much just rattled me and I'm just so excited to be part of the squad now,'' Hayne said.

    "It happened so fast ... I just can't wait to see the boys.''

    Asked how worried he'd been in the lead-up to the hearing, Hayne said: "Obviously very - State of Origin's such a massive thing. I'm just glad I can be a part of it."
