Flanagan had been serving a 12-month ban from the NRL over governance issues arising from the Sharks' 2011 supplements programme.

The NRL says Flanagan has satisfied all conditions required to lift the ban, including the completion of training courses and demonstrating he understands his obligations as a head coach.
