Catalans Dragons stand-off Sam Tomkins has avoided suspension after being charged with a grade A offence of dangerous contact.
Tomkins was given a zero-match penalty notice by the Rugby Football League's match review panel for the tackle on St Helens stand-off Jack Welsby during his side's 50-14 defeat at Saints on Sunday.
Matty Costello scored a second-half hat-trick as St Helens ran in nine tries to protect their four-point lead over Warrington at the top of the Betfred Super League table.
Dragons second-rower Kenny Edwards has also been cleared to play in Friday's game at Hull after receiving a caution for kicking out in Sunday's match.
Meanwhile, St Helens forward Junior Paulo has been told that his sin-binning for running in was sufficient punishment.
