A threat of suspension hanging over both men was lifted when the Rugby Football League's match review panel ruled neither had a case to answer.

England captain Peacock was sweating over a high tackle on Catalans skipper Greg Bird during Leeds Rhinos' 32-30 defeat in Perpignan on Saturday.

Bradford's Burgess was on report after being sin-binned for his part in a fracas during the Bulls' 36-22 win over Wakefield on Sunday, meanwhile.
