Frank-Paul Nuuausala has been cleared to face St Helens after not being cited for throwing an opponent’s boot from the pitch.

No Wigan or Warrington players have been charged by the RFL’s match review panel.

Some had questioned whether Nuuausala may be in hot water with disciplinary chiefs after being spotted throwing the boot of Warrington’s Benjamin Jullien into the crowd in the build-up to Jack Hughes’ late try.

But his name does not appear on a list of all of the incidents considered by the review panel.

Two players were charged from the Magic Weekend games.

Catalans’ Greg Bird is facing a ban of one or two games for standing on an opponent, and Leigh’s Adam Higson faces a suspension of four to eight weeks for a high tackle which saw him red-carded.
