Kikau cops fine, free to play in final

Fiji Bati second-row forward Viliame Kikau will feature for the Penrith Panthers in the NRL grand final against the Parramatta Eels on Sunday after entering an early guilty plea to a shoulder charge offence and has receiving a monetary fine. 
Kikau was charged with a Grade One offence for his tackle on Campbell Graham, bringing with it a fine of $3,000 with the early guilty plea.
Team-mate Charlie Staines will also be eligible for selection after he entered an early guilty plea to a Grade One Shoulder Charge offence and was fined $1,500. 
Panthers winger Taylan May will be available for selection following his one-game suspension for a careless high tackle, but will now need to overcome a hamstring injury by Wednesday in order to take his place in this year's Grand Final.
The Panthers vs Eels final will kick off at 8 pm at Accor Stadium in Sydney.
