He will now be available for selection in the replay.
Alan McNamee will be available for selection for the Offaly Senior Football final replay this weekend.
Rhode appealed to Offaly GAA regarding a red card handed out in the first contest and after reviewing video evidence, and officials have overturned the decision.
It's understood the argument centered around mitigating circumstances involved in his tackle on Tullamore's Diarmuid Egan.
The decision is sure to be a polarising one among fans, players and officials involved in both Tullamore and Rhode but it is a major boost to the defending champions chances of retaining their title.
The replay following the dramatic draw takes place this Sunday at 2pm in O'Connor Park.
