Jack de Belin's lawyers have told the federal court that he should be free to play in Round 1 of the NRL season.

His lawyers have argued he can't be sidelined because the NRL's new stand down policy isn't an enforceable rule of the game yet.

A hearing has been set down for next Thursday - the same day the season kicks off - with the Dragons' first game of the season against the Cowboys on the Saturday.

More to come.
