Sad but unsurprising story, I don’t know if this guy was given much support from his club post-football; and even before this I always thought why is he not involved with the club in any capacity.
DRUG BOMBSHELL SET TO BREAK
One of the league’s biggest names in the last 20 years is facing serious drugs supply charges.
The player, now retired, can’t be named on the instructions of the judge handling the case - for the moment. But he was arrested last week and appeared in court before being granted bail.
But he will be back before the judge soon and is then likely to be ‘outed’ - and make front page news.
The case is no fault of the NRL - it did the right thing by the player during his long career - but the incident will give the game another black eye nonetheless because of the man concerned’s high profile.
