    Souths broom used again.....

    I'll take a stab at how the media will handle this, it won't mention "mental health".

    My major questions are now:
    - Should have Cody reported this? Arguably yes. If not, why not?
    - Did Souths know about this last year like some are alleging? If so, NRL needs to come down hard.

    Poor effort compared to Chris Sandow's street brawl.

    This is clearly the worst off-field event of the past decade. He should be sacked, de-registered and the club should lose competition points. What a horrendous, despicable act. What a joke. Watch the NRL sweep this under the carpet once again.

    :rolleyes:

    What did NAS get for getting filmed belting dudes in Bali?

    He needs to go for that plus another week or two as there’s no way he can claim self defence

    Gotta say that Wayne Bennett's legendary man management skills are doing wonders down at Souffs. Well oiled machine with all players knowing they're for the high jump if they step out of line while Wayne is at the helm.

    What about the alleged attempted blackmail. What is the simple fact?
    Was it kept from the NRL though, it looks like the player is on the front foot with this at least.

    The alleged blackmail is possibly worse. All you need to do is bait an NRL player and film it and then try to extort it if this pans out as Walker's fault.

    Don't speak...

    Is what they all should have agreed to per the rules of fight club.

    In all seriousness though, I've just watched the full 2 minute video and it would appear that the fight was staged and Cody came running into to defend his cousin not knowing this. The two guys basically shake hands after it all.

    Should he cop a fine? Probably. If the person involve doesn't press charges it should probably be left at that.
