Graham Not Charged by MRC
James Graham has been cleared to play in finals week one after being put on report during the Bulldogs clash against the South Sydney Rabbitohs on Friday night.
The Bulldogs skipper was sighted by referee Ahley Klein after he was judged to have lashed out at fellow English team mate Sam Burgess.
Burgess who spoke following the match told the media he would not like to see any further action following the incident.
"It didn't get me," Burgess said after the heated affair at ANZ Stadium.
"I don't want to see him miss any games. It's a battle out there and it gets heated.
"We're both competitive blokes so it's going to boil over. There was nothing in it. If anything, I could have just got up and gotten on with it. I hope he'll be alright and nothing will come of it.
"It's football. I've got a lot of respect for James. I think everyone knows that we've got a quite open rivalry.
"It's the first time we've played each other since the grand final. We've got a healthy rivalry and I've got all the respect for him as a player and as a friend.
"We always have a crack when we play each other and I think that's why we both respect each other."
The Bulldogs will now await the release of the NRL finals week one draw release on Sunday.
