Dwyer free to take on Dragons

Boom Wests Tigers forward Simon Dwyer is free to play in Saturday night's blockbuster NRL preliminary final against St George Illawarra despite being charged for a high tackle.

Dwyer was placed on report for a 76th minute shot on Canberra forward Joe Picker last Friday night, also drawing a penalty which almost sent the semi-final into extra time.

Raiders centre Jarrod Croker missed the relatively-simple penalty goal attempt and the Tigers went on to win 26-24 at Canberra Stadium.

Dwyer has received a grade one careless high tackle charge and will avoid a ban regardless of whether he enters the early guilty plea or unsuccessfully defends himself at the NRL judiciary.

The charge comes a week after he avoided any action over a shot which left Sydney Roosters forward Jared Waerea-Hargreaves concussed.

The Tigers play the Dragons at ANZ Stadium for a place in the October 3 grand final.

The news isn't as good for Raiders prop Scott Logan, who has been handed a grade four careless high tackle charge for a 46th minute hit that left Tigers lock Chris Heighington groggy.

Logan will miss one match with the early plea and two if he loses a case at the judiciary.
