Brisbane back rower wins NRL downgrade

6:24 am on 26 July 2012

The Brisbane league forward Ben Te'o successfully argued for a downgraded charge at the NRL judiciary last night, and he's free to play against Parramatta on Monday.

Te'o was hit with a grade-two charge for his challenge on the Gold Coast prop Luke Bailey last Friday, but it took the judiciary panel less than 10 minutes to agree to a downgrade.
