BRISBANE midfielder Jarrod Berry is free to face Geelong in Friday night's preliminary final after having his one-match suspension overturned at the Tribunal on Tuesday night.

Berry was charged with intentional contact to the eye region of Melbourne's Clayton Oliver in last Friday night's semi-final, but after two hours of evidence, the Lions got the news they craved.

The Tribunal agreed with Brisbane that Berry's actions were not a "raking motion" as submitted by the AFL, but one of self-defence as he tried to pry Oliver off him.

Glad he got off, Clarry looked like he was acting a bit of a thug to me.
