CASTLEFORD Tigers’ back rower Stuart Jones will be available for Saturday’s Super League XVI derby at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats after he was cleared by an RFL disciplinary panel.

Jones was found not guilty of making dangerous contact on Brent Webb in the 66th minute of last Friday’s 56-0 loss to Leeds Rhinos.

Meanwhile, former Wildcats winger Damien Blanch has been handed a £300 fine and a warning by the panel after he was found guilty of fighting in the Catalan Dragons’ 40-8 loss at Hull FC.
