    ROOSTERS officials have launched an investigation into reports that star trio Nate Myles, Todd Carney and Frank-Paul Nu'uausala broke a team booze ban in the early hours of this morning.

    The Daily Telegraph has learned that a cab driver phoned the club earlier today to inform officials of a fare they hailed between a Double Bay hotel and an Oxford St pub late last night.

    The players have been contacted and are expected to be questioned later today.

    The latest drama to beset the Bondi club comes just over a week after the entire team agreed to embark on a fortnight-long alcohol ban, in the wake of concerns from the senior player group over deteriorating off-field behaviour.

    The story will be detailed as more

    They played like they were drunk on Sunday.

    Cabbie obviosuly not a Roosters fan. LOL. Perhaps Teflon did a runner, or Nate used the back seat as his lavatory.

    With Toddy playing like crap the Roosters may finally punt him. Naturally they will wish him well in fighting his off-field 'demons'. Then they'll poach Duggan from Canberra.
    They, along with 'Matta are a club in crisis.

    Todd has an excuse.

    How could anyone be expected to sleep without assistance after T-Rex running over the top of 24 times in one afternoon. The nightmares must be horrific.

    What about Nate Miles it took him 3 minutes to play the ball every time he was tackled. He wanted no part of the Manly forwards and thought stalling was his best tactic.

    He will chose from one of the following options:

    (a) It was not an official club function
    (b) It was not "double demerits"
    (c) He doesn't play for Manly
    (d) All of the above.

    Toddy needs to get back on the grog to find his form. The Roosters, now there's a club that shouldn't exist.

    If this is indeed true you can get a snapshot of the club culture right there . While Todd is his own man and is responsible for his own actions, any team mate that drank with him just isnt a mate. With his history and reportably on his last 100 chances a team mate should just refuse to be anywhere near him if he wants to self destruct

    Clubs readily talk about mateship, and a bond that is a key ingredient in success and this surely is not evident here at all

    Todd Carney and alcahol is bad enough , but todd, beer and a team mate is just terrible. If i were the coach id want them all gone as they have not displayed team ethics even if the other two hadnt had a beer. If todd did and they were there and did nothing..........damage done

    Would you do this to one of your mates, its disgusting and says a lot about the individuals and the club. The chooks need to act very strongly here and with there position on the ladder they have nothing to lose

    Although it would be great to bash the rorters and without seeing the full article it doesn't state that they were actually drinking. It only stated that they hailed a cab between a Double Bay hotel and an Oxford St pub late last night, that doesn't necessarily mean they had an alcoholic beverage at the club or that they were intoxicated. We shouldn't be jumping to conclusions, innocent until otherwise proven guilty.

    Very true. But do you really think Easts will give us anything but spin? Their decisions over discipline are based purely on the football ability of their players. So, Toddy, if I was you I'd be starting to pack my bags. Is there still a spot in that pub team?
