    Apparently there are also two lower grade Players from other Clubs (Not Manly) in strife :s

    ASADA needs to test Alcohol Tolerance Levels for NRL Players, to see who becomes an f*wit after exposure to it :idea:

    All the NRL Boys get plenty of Education Training on Drugs, Alcohol and Parties, throughout the season, there is No Excuse. If you have training the next morning, you have a quiet night.

    Gee the "super coach" Bennett is having his fair share of failures, both at Newcastle and with the Details that emerged on Sunday of exciting centre Dane Gagai, who joined Newcastle in 2012 after being sacked by Brisbane, going missing at an emerging Queensland Origin camp following a boozy night out.

    The 23-year-old had a night out during the January 17-19 camp and didn't front for training the next day at the camp being run by Knights coach Wayne Bennett at the Queensland Academy of Sport in Brisbane.

    Scheduling any sort of training session the day after Australia Day? Smarts?

    The tv news no.2 story was a NRL player on mid range drink driving. Fine, Let's shame him and his employer. They even went to the NRL office and made out they should be doing something about the player.

    Later they reported there were 171 caught drink driving this Australia Day weekend. None of them were named. None of their employers were bullied by the media into sanctioning their employee.

    It's a pity the other 170 aren't outed like the NRL footballer, his employer and even the NRL. Maybe then the 2015 Australia Day will have a lot less than 171 caught and many more doing it anyway.

    Our society is insane putting footballers as life's #1 example to follow.

    The Police & Government should tell people that its illegal to drink & drive, instead of just springing it on people like poor Willy.

    The Club is culpable by organising an early morning training run on a day the rest of the country has off.

    Totally agree.

    Whilst not condoning any DUI, at least Big Willie had the brains to do the right thing and catch a cab home on the night (hope he didn't do a runner) and as he said "just didn't think the next morning"

    Still a dope, but only half a dope.

    Knights centre Dane Gagai has been sidelined from Queensland selection after hitting the turps during an emerging Origin camp and missing a training run.

    Queensland coach Mal Meninga said last night the 23-year-old would have to do his "penance" and pay the consequences for breaking team rules.

    NSW police should just lock up the entire Knights team and be done with it.

    Lol they are not having a very good run are they. And to think the NRL slugged Manly with a $100 000 fine (is my memory correct?) for Brett getting pissed at the season launch.

    Newcastle have about 5 or 6 serious police matters (unlike Brett's court case which was a stitch up). We had 1, which was questionable at best. Shouldnt Newcastle be in line for a $100 000 fine?
