    NRL player Pomeroy on assault charge

    December 17, 2008 - 12:31PM

    Cronulla Sharks rugby league player Ben Pomeroy is in a Sydney court, accused of punching a man in the face at a heavy metal concert.

    Pomeroy, 23, was charged in May with the assault of 24-year-old Matthew Colin Cooper at a concert of American heavy rockers Korn at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on April 20.

    In his opening submission on Wednesday, prosecutor Paul McGirr told Downing Centre Local Court Pomeroy had deliberately struck Mr Cooper.

    "It is not in dispute that there was a lot of dancing and what is referred to as `moshing'," Mr McGirr said.

    "It is alleged... Mr Pomeroy has... raised his arms... that some pushing has occurred in that particular mosh area, and that Mr Pomeroy has then approached the alleged victim with an alleged fist out in front of him at chest height."

    Mr McGirr tendered CCTV footage of the concert, but admitted it did not show the specifics of the alleged incident.

    Pomeroy, who was present in court wearing a pin-striped suit, is charged with assault occasioning bodily harm, to which he has pleaded not guilty.

    Mr Cooper's physician, Colin Reid, told the hearing his patient had some bruising below his eye and the lower part of his nose was deviated when he saw him on April 24.

    "It was consistent with a recent injury," Dr Reid said.

    Under cross examination from Pomeroy's lawyer Les Nicholls, Dr Reid said any evidence of a pre-existing injury would have been visible on the X-ray taken on April 24.

    The court will be shown a 10 minute portion of the CCTV footage when the hearing continues before Magistrate John Andrews.

    This follows on the drunk driving charge against 'what's his name', their half or 5/8, someone forgettable.  Oh well, Good to see the Gummies down the toilet once again.  And I noticed there might be talk of a million bucks for the Bird mess.  Cronulla should just fold right now and go to Adelaide, Darwin, Perth or somewhere else.

    Pomeroy should be charged with bad taste in music if he goes to a Korn concert.  He deserves to be sacked for that alone!

    Pommeroy got off, which is good cause if you go to a metal gig and then go to the mosh, you should expect to get f-ed up.  Don't be a wuss
