    At least he didn't have to use his own hands to extract the $30000 bribe. Oops, peace offering.
    He would have said to one of the press reporters living in that pocket " hey merkin . . . pass me up 30k"

    The AFP are not the NRL and might actually investigate if a bribe has been paid to a foreign official

    Such a shame what he did. To think I was actually enjoying seeing his rising career & doing something like this. Should at least get a 6 month suspension. Terrible look for the game, guys like Matty Lodge, Asofa-Solomona should be getting similar punishments. Look at Folau for example & he was only quoting a bible verse. FFS!

    Sadly you have misunderstood.
    My point is the security guard has agreed to a $25000aus settlement. How many years wages is that in Bali?
    This after stating that the money wasn’t important just teaching the arrogant tourist a lesson.

    Well seeing as the average settlement is $10,000 for such an assault and Rugby League players can hit on average two and a half times as hard as the average person and earn 4 times as much, entirely reasonable

    In fact, he got off a little cheap.
    Hopefully he has learnt his lesson.

    Lets not defend dickhead behaviour
    Lets make it clear that boof head behaviour isn't tolerated

    We should not be defending these guys even if they play for the teams we love

    So Fifita looks set to sign for 750k per year over 3 years; in doing so turning down 1m per year offers.

    Not even we can pull that off, with Latrell scoffing at 800k.

    The likes of Lodge and TPJ have also turned down much more (on the cap, not TPAs mmm hmmm).

    So the question is, how is this footy club so god damn freaking awful when they have advantages that blow away every other club?

    They are the greatest underachievers in world sport and should be ashamed of themselves.

    This will become the new goto scam in Bali, similar to pedestrians who throw themselves in front of vehicles for the insurance payout.

    1. Wait for the NRL offseason
    2. Bait drunk players
    3. $$$$$$

    They all take unders just to play under supercoach Wayne Ben.... Oh... Wait.

    They all take unders to play for the most successful club in the NR... Oh... Hang on.

    They all take unders to live in the best city in Austr.... Um...

    They all take unders because not even the Broncos can come up with a decent explanation as to why nowadays. Lucky for them, everyone is just so used to it happening that no one really questions it anymore.

    Average as shit team with a dud coach based in a dump but they're the only ones in that dump so they have lots and lots of $$$$.

    You had better hope that Wayne gets you a premiership this year, because what starts happening from the 3rd year on is not pretty.

    Yes, they've under achieved, but both the players you mentioned owe the Broncos a massive debt, especially Lodge and Brisbane is a great place to live

    As a sportsman, I would take living there over the madness in Sydney

    In fact, I would move there now if I wasn't allergic to the sun

    Has this guy had his meeting with Todd and/or the Integrity Unit?
    Everything has unsurprisingly gone quiet
