Blues playmaker won't miss game two

New South Wales will attempt to end Queensland's State of Origin reign with their playmakers intact, after the Canterbury Bulldogs five-eighth Josh Reynolds successfully had dangerous throw charge reduced to a grade one offence last night at the NRL Judiciary.

Reynolds' representative argued that fellow Blues' tackler Beau Scott significantly contributed to the dangerous position Queensland's Brent Tate was placed in during the spectacular tackle.

It took the judiciary panel just under 10 minutes to agree that Reynolds' role in the dangerous nature of the incident was no worse than Scott's, who had only received a grade one charge.

The outcome won't go down well with Queensland, and Brent Tate has described the tackle as the most frightening he's ever experienced.
