    THE former rugby league players Terry Hill and Scott Fulton will have to pay more than $7000 each after being caught tampering with lobster pots in a NSW Fisheries sting.

    The brothers-in-law were filmed lifting a commercial fisherman's lobster pots on the Hawkesbury River near Broken Bay on December 29 last year.

    The former Manly Sea Eagles teammates were each charged with seven counts of interfering with set fishing gear, which carries a maximum $5500 fine, and one count of fishing without a licence.

    Hill, 34, and Fulton, 33, the son of the former Kangaroos coach Bob Fulton, pleaded guilty to the charges when they appeared in Gosford Local Court yesterday.

    The magistrate, Gary Cocks, accepted that the men, who were not found with any lobsters on their boat, had not planned a raid on the traps.

    He fined them a total of $2550 each and ordered them to pay $4500 each in law enforcement agency costs.

    On 7 news last night they were described as either champion players or league legends (not sure which now). I bet thats the first & last time Scotty gets that big a rap.

    They probably remember him from his time as a ball boy for the 87 Grand Final team!

    Scott Fulton should have been fined/locked up for impersonating a footballer years ago.

    Loved and forgiven Tezza already. Scott Fulton only played any grade because of his dad.

    That was a really good idea of theirs. Cost them 352 lobsters each :)
