Canterbury prop SAM KASIANO will be free to face Manly on Friday after being found not guilty of a grade-two careless high tackle by the NRL judiciary.

KASIANO was placed on report after collecting Parramatta prop FUIFUI MOIMOI across the head with his right arm in the opening 10 seconds of the Bulldogs' 32-12 win over the Eels.

The NRL's counsel PETER KITE said KASIANO did not show the necessary duty of care to avoid forceful contact with the upper head and neck area of MOIMOI.

Canterbury's counsel NICK GHABAR said KASIANO did not have the time to change his line of attack as MOIMOI was slipping.

And after 20 minutes of deliberation, the panel found KASIANO not guilty.
