The trio were all facing the possibility of being reprimanded for challenges during Australia's battling 16-12 victory, for which they were put on report by referee Gerard Sutton.

England captain O'Loughlin, who returned to action following a quad injury, was being investigated for a supposed trip on Australia hooker Cameron Smith.

Wigan Warriors team-mate Farrell was also under review over a "chicken wing" tackle - whereby a player locks an opponents arms so they cannot legally move the ball- on Greg Inglis.

However, both men have been cleared to face New Zealand on Saturday.

"There were no charges from week two of the Four Nations which means Sean O'Loughlin and Liam Farrell are free to play against New Zealand this weekend," read a post of England Rugby League's Twitter account.

Australia forward Bird will also face no action for a possible "spear" tackle on O'Loughlin and is cleared to face Samoa.
