LIAM Watts has escaped a ban for tripping Warrington Wolves second rower Ben Currie during Thursday's Super League elimination final at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.

The Castleford Tigers prop was hit with a Grade A charge for "reactionary or reckless tripping" on Currie in the 19th minute of The Wire's 14-12 defeat.

Watts, who was penalised at the time by referee Chris Kendall, has received a zero-match penalty notice so will be available for their second eliminator at Salford Red Devils on Thursday.

Watts had two further instances of dangerous contact looked at by the Match Review Panel - neither of which was deemed worthy of a charge.

Meanwhile, the panel deemed Bryson Goodwin's 80th-minute sin-binning as sufficient punishment after a ball he kicked struck referee Kendall.
