Titans trio free for Origin selection

·1-min read

Gold Coast trio David Fifita, Tino Fa'asuamaleaui and Moeaki Fotuaika are free for Queensland Origin selection after avoiding any possible match bans from the NRL judiciary.

Fifita received a fine from a contrary conduct charge stemming from their loss to Cronulla while Fa'asuamaleaui escaped any charge by the match review panel after he was put on report for a tackle on Shark Toby Rudolf.

Fellow Titans Fotuaika and Mitch Rein were also involved in the same lifting tackle but were handed fines from the grade one dangerous throw charges.

While Fifita and Fa'asuamaleaui are locks for selection, prop Fotuaika also appears certain to be picked after debuting last year.

The Maroons already have Felise Kaufusi appearing before the panel on Tuesday night in a bid to beat a tripping charge.

In other judiciary charges from Sunday games Manly pair Sean Keppie (dangerous contact) and Tevita Funa (crusher tackle) face a week out with an early guilty plea after they were charged following the Sea Eagles' loss to Newcastle.

Veteran Manly front-rower Martin Taupau faces a fine for a grade one careless high tackle.

Knights prop David Klemmer can accept a two-week ban for his grade two careless high tackle charge while his teammate Tyson Frizell, missing Origin through injury, was fined for a grade one offence.
