    The NRL has been hit with yet another off-field scandal with Newcastle centre Tautau Moga charged with common assault.
    Moga, 25, allegedly hit a taxi driver in Newcastle on Boxing Day and was subsequently charged by police on January 9.

    He will face court on March 21.
    The Knights issued a statement on Friday afternoon.

    “The Newcastle Knights were made aware of an incident involving a player on December 26, 2018,” the statement read.

    “The club alerted the NRL Integrity Unit at an appropriate time and are co-operating with the NSW Police.

    “No further comment will be made.”

    Moga joined the Knights ahead of the 2018 season and made four appearances before suffering an anterior cruciate ligament rupture which ended his season.

    No incidents in 2019 makes it a good year so far. Give it time I guess....

    Honestly, what the actual f**k is happening here?

    I just wish we could catch Todd Greenberg doing something, the game would be better off

    Who assaults a taxi driver? They pick you up drive you where you want and you pay them and get out. You only get in an argument if you are being a merkin.

    What is it with players and taxi drivers? Do they think they are chauffeurs and get upset when they are asked to pay or something?

    It has been an entertaining off season, takes the focus off our shit cricket team.

    But in all seriousness, surely the nrl will use this off season as a catalyst for change now
