NRL confirms Latrell Mitchell and Jack Wighton will play in the Indigenous All Stars game despite being charged over incident in Canberra

Latrell Mitchell and Jack Wighton will be free to play for the Indigenous All Stars after the pair apologised for an "embarrassing" skirmish in Canberra which led to their arrests.
The pair were arrested on Bunda St in Canberra's CBD at 3:45am on Sunday following Wighton's 30th birthday celebrations.

The NRL has confirmed the incident — described by the players as "harmless" — will not rule either player out of Saturday's game against the Maori.

"Both Latrell Mitchell and Jack Wighton remain available to participate in the 2023 All Stars match this Saturday in Rotorua," the NRL said in a statement.
