Roosters up to old tricks

    YOU just can't believe it.

    A year after Nate Myles was suspended for six matches and fined $50,000 for defecating in a hotel, two more Sydney Roosters players have performed the same disgusting and vile act.

    The Roosters yesterday sacked Toyota Cup players Sam Brunton and Anthony Gelling, who are accused of defecating on tables and the floor of rooms at the Holiday Inn, Townsville, last weekend.

    The Roosters were in North Queensland to play the Cowboys last Saturday night.

    A cleaner claimed the rooms were "disgusting, absolutely disgusting".

    The club issued a media statement yesterday but attempted to cover up the players' names and their repulsive, shameful indiscretion.

    But The Daily Telegraph has learned that Brunton and Gelling defecated on the floor next to the toilet and on white tables in hotel rooms. This occurred in several rooms.

    It is understood Holiday Inn management have taken photos of the faeces and subsequently contacted the Roosters.

    "A little bit feral they were," said Sue, a cleaner who wished to remain anonymous. "I don't really know a huge amount about it.

    "All I know is the cleaner entered the room, they had defecated on the floor next to the toilet in one of the rooms and defecated on the white tables that are in the rooms. And they did it in a couple of rooms."

    "She [another cleaner] said it was disgusting, absolutely disgusting. She doesn't get paid enough to do that.

    "These are players that children respect and they are held in high regard by the community."

    The second cleaner did not want to be interviewed for fear that any comments could result in her being sacked.

    Brunton played three NRL games this season in rounds six, seven and eight.

    He was an interchange player against Canberra and St George Illawarra and started at hooker against Wests Tigers.

    "It was inappropriate behaviour and they have suffered the consequences," Roosters chief executive Steve Noyce said.

    Asked why his club would not name and shame the pair, Noyce said: "We don't think it is necessary. It's not a police matter and not a public issue. It is an internal matter.

    "Their contracts have been terminated and we have to get on with things."

    NRL chief executive David Gallop said: "We are waiting on a full report from the Roosters but clearly something very unacceptable has happened."

    A Roosters media release attempted to say the incident was a "prank" and that alcohol was not involved.

    It read: "The incident, which started out as a prank, did not involve alcohol.

    "However, the behaviour was unacceptable and the club saw it fit to take the strongest action possible."

    The Roosters, who finished fifth in Toyota Cup, play North Queensland again this Saturday at the SFS.
