Vatuvei cleared for Bulldogs clash

WARRIORS winger Manu Vatuvei is free to play against the Bulldogs at Mount Smart Stadium on Sunday.

Vatuvei was put on report for a heavy tackle on Parramatta's Willie Tonga last night but the NRL's match review committee has found no case to answer.

Having the Kiwis international and 134-match veteran available for this weekend's clash against the unbeaten Bulldogs is welcoming news for the club he was back to his best in last night's victory.

Vatuvei coughed up six errors in the season-opening defeat by Manly, but there was no sign of any wobbles as he turned in a dominant aerial display to help subdue the brave but ultimately outgunned Eels.
