    This from the herald:

    MANLY Sea Eagles winger Jorge Taufua has been charged with assault for allegedly spitting at a police officer on the Gold Coast overnight.

    It's alleged the 20-year-old rookie player was arrested at 3.35am outside Shooters nightclub in Surfers Paradise.

    He faced the Southport Magistrates Court this morning with his head and right eye heavily bandaged and his hands cuffed in front of him.

    Taufua had been staying at Crowne Plaza in Surfers Paradise with friends before the alleged incident this morning.

    Police did not oppose bail but asked for a disease test to be carried out.

    Magistrate John Costanzo granted bail but banned him from attending any licensed premises in Queensland.

    He will also have to report to the Mt Druitt Police Station.

    The duty lawyer said Taufua has no criminal history.

      oh no....

      maybe the copper should have gotten out of his way?

      sauce?

      edit: ah good old shooters, sounds like it hasn't changed?

      Maybe it wasn't Jorge. It might have been someone who is a spitting image of him :p

        Sounds unsavoury but I'll reserve my judgement until more facts are known & the club responds :(

        He needs to call Shane Dunley to arrange his defence.

        Seriously what is wrong with these football players.

        It's not the worst crime. A worse crime would be a Bulldogs player doing exactly the same thing.

        It seems odd that he is charged with assault but he is the one with his head heavily bandaged? Did the policeman he spat at have a bandaged fist?
