Price, Finch cleared at judiciary

Bulldogs captain Steve Price has been cleared to play against Melbourne in Sunday's rugby league semi-final at Aussie Stadium after his grade one striking charge was dismissed at the NRL judiciary.

The inspirational Price, who will link up with the Warriors at the end of the season, had pleaded not guilty to striking North Queensland's Glenn Morrison in the Bulldogs 30-22 loss against the Cowboys on Saturday.

It was good news for the skipper who'd had a difficult match against the Queenslanders including receiving a stint in the sin bin for a professional foul on Cowboys pivot David Myles.

During his time off the field the Cowboys racked up a 10-0 lead.

In an earlier case at the judiciary Roosters half Brett Finch succeeded in having his grade two high tackle charge downgraded to a grade one.

That left Finch available to play in the Roosters' preliminary final match next Sunday against the winner of this weekend's clash between Brisbane and North Queensland.

Had the original charge for the tackle on Canberra's Clinton Schifcofske stuck Finch would not have been available to play for the Roosters again this season.
