BULLDOGS forward Willie Mason is free to play in the NRL match against Newcastle on Friday despite being charged by the match review committee.
Mason, who monstered the Wests Tigers pack during his side's 47-12 victory over the premier last Friday, was charged with a grade-one careless tackle by the match review committee for his hit on former teammate Jamaal Lolesi.
But the Kangaroos second rower will be free to play the Knights at EnergyAustralia Stadium as he didn't accrue enough points to be rubbed out for a match whether he pleads guilty or fights the charge and loses.
Tigers prop Bryce Gibbs meanwhile faces a one-match ban after he received a grade-one striking charge for dropping a forearm on Bulldogs forward Mark O'Meley.
Wests Tigers have already indicated that Gibbs won't play against New Zealand Warriors this weekend after suffering concussion during the Bulldogs match.
Manly prop Kylie Leuluai faces a two-week ban after he received a grade-one contrary conduct charge for a kneeing incident in his side's loss to North Queensland.
Newcastle utility Anthony Quinn was charged with a grade-one dangerous throw and faces two weeks on the sidelines.
Penrith back rower Luke Swain will escape suspension with an early guilty plea to a grade-one dangerous throw charge.
Teammate Frank Puletua will also avoid a stint on the sidelines if he enters an early guilty plea to a grade-two careless high tackle charge.
