I won’t be naming names obviously, but from what I have heard, this is going to be huge news when the name comes out as he was a very popular NRL player over the course of his career and it will shock many

Sad tale, regardless of who it turns out to be.

They are saying aged in his 30's so not long retired - last 10 years

There's only one name that would truly shock me, the rest ....well anything is possible these days. The amount of ex players (and ex athletes in general across a lot of sports) caught up in the drug trade seems high. That's probably because it gets reported on more often, but still wonder why so many end up down that path

Speculation only of course but anecdotally players can get into drugs quite easily. Firstly, because they are warned off alcohol, secondly, some are pumped so full of painkillers that this can sometimes lead to dependence. Once you are in a drug-using culture then it is not a big step to get into supply, in fact you may end up with little choice. It is a slippery slope.

My hunch was wrong in that case

Long term problem for the Kiwis.

Manu had a few stints to overcome his issues in the past and we all know how low Fiz was driven by his excess :confused:

Sad to hear that sport is no longer the healthy lifestyle that parents wanted for their kids

Okay, I'm stumped.

I realise the dangers of mentioning any names but can anyone offer any hints as to who it may be?

I thought perhaps the use of "hunch" earlier may have been a cryptic clue of sorts so was wondering if any recently retired Warriors players had the nickname "Quasimodo"?

No Manly connection at all

If you think Warriors over the last 10-15 years this bloke would be one of the first that springs to mind
