This was in reply to an email sent to the NRL earlier today. I had posted it on another thread.............. Hi Russell, Thanks for your email. We understand the emotion that has surrounded this case and it is why at all times the NRL has acted based on facts. It was stated clearly at the time and remains the case that the actions taken by the NRL related to matters outside those which have been determined by the court today. The NRL at the time refused to bow to a number of public calls that Brett be stood down indefinitely until the court case was determined. It refused at all time to pass judgment on the matters that were subject of the police charges. We are glad that Brett has been able to have his day in court and to be proven not guilty. We respect that decision and wish him well in the future as we always have. I am sure that he appreciates your support. Please also see Media Release that the NRL issued on Wednesday regarding the NSW District Court verdict.
