@cochise But no one has said he is guilty. He’s being stood down and receiving full pay while he doesn’t play. Best thing for Jack would be to proclaim innocence, welcome his day in court and use his time to go study a degree.
The thing the nrl are missing is the lost wages component by any potential increase he could have received from his next contract. If he is found not guilty, the nrl should top up his wages by what ever loss the time out of the game is perceived to have caused. Including 3rd party. This could potentially be well estimated based on current wage, age, position and rep honours.
