Curtis Scott cleared by NRL, free to play for Canberra Raiders

But after viewing both police and CCTV footage, NRL chief Todd Greenberg will allow the Raiders recruit to line up against the Titans on Friday week.

Scott, who has pleaded not guilty to the charges, replaced his original lawyer Danny Eid with Sam Macedone last month.

Macedone argued that his client’s actions were below the threshold which Greenberg has used to stand players down.

“His job at the end of the day is to protect the NRL brand and reputation,” Macedone said.

“There is a bar that is set and if you cross that bar, you are in trouble. If you don’t cross that bar, you’ll be all right.

“That’s my argument, I’m here to argue exactly that. Hopefully the NRL sees it that way.”

It appears as though Greenberg did see the incident that way, as Scott will now be free to face Gold Coast in round one.
