Nick Scruton is clear to play against St Helens at Odsal on Saturday after winning his appeal against suspension.

The Bulls prop was accused of making a reckless shoulder charge on Castleford scrum half Gareth O’Brien in the fourth minute of his side’s 38-12 win over the Tigers on Saturday.

But the RFL disciplinary panel tonight ruled that Scruton’s first contact with O’Brien was legal and that a suspension was unnecessary.
