Jackson and Saifiti charged

Bulldogs back-rower Josh Jackson and Newcastle forward Jacob Saifiti have both escaped suspension, with the pair entering an early guilty plea for their respective charges in Round 16.

Saifiti was cited for his tackle on Dragons forward Tyson Frizell (grade one dangerous contact), while Jackson was slapped with a grade one dangerous throw on Tevita Pangai Jnr, but will be free to play against the Roosters on Thursday night.
