Manly star Dylan Walker will be free to play in Round 1 despite being charged with two counts of common assault following an incident in November last year.

Walker allegedly assaulted two men outside a pizza shop in Sydney’s northern beaches and is set to face court in mid-May, with close to 20 witnesses set to be present at the hearing.

With the NRL deciding not to stand Walker down and his court dates not clashing with the 2021 season until Round 10, the 26-year-old has been given the all clear to play against the Roosters on March 13.

By the way...

Canberra Raiders' Tom Starling has got off the majority of his charges relating to an incident in Central Coast in December.

Six of the seven charges against the 22-year old has been dropped, including assaulting police.

Charges:

Starling was charged with failing to leave premises when required, common assault, two counts of resisting an officer in the execution of duty and two counts of assaulting an officer in the execution of duty and affray.

The only charge that remains is hinder – to which he has pleaded not guilty.

Note, Walker was previously the second player to be stood down under the controversial 'no fault' stand down policy (Dec 2018/May '19) he was found not guilty of attacking his partner.
