-NEWS- Staggs in strife again

The NRL's Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (aka Integrity Unit) is shit sifting Kotoni Stagg's sauced up antics at the Eatons Hill Hotel over Easter. They have requested CCTV footage hoping to indentify a woman who can help them stitch up Kotoni.

The story currently circulating alleges the NSWelshman was on the turps with his mates before heading to the Eatons Hill Hotel in search of some action. All fine until just before 3am when the Broncos centre mustered the courage to make his move on one of a gaggle of women. Staggs tried his signature move of extending his arm around her but this time it didn't work. The lady nightowl allegedly didn't care for Stagg's advance and asked him to keep his mitts to himself. Bouncers intervened and promptly turfed the highly eligible bachelor out on his ear. And that was the end of that. Until the NRL got wind of it.

So now Kotoni has run afoul of the code's moral guardians 3 times in 12 months. Not a good look for the player holding the entire club to ransom over his contract.

Top NRL Mullah Andrew Abdo said this of his last incident back in February:


“We have issued him with a $10,000 fine and most importantly, he has to complete an education course and he has to meet with me personally and the head of integrity, together with the club CEO, before he is permitted to play again. We want him to understand the impact of his words on people and the responsibility that players have to the community. His language is utterly unacceptable but this is about making sure he understands the impact of that and actually changes."

Education

“There are three components - the fine, the education course and making sure he sits down with us. Getting them to meet with me is not the silver bullet, but I want to explain to them the impact this has on their personal brand, on the club brand and on the game’s brand and then there are two ways they can go from there."

“This is important in relation to Kotoni which is why we want to meet with him before he returns to the field.”

I've seen this movie before.

Step 1) We sack him / let him walk
Step 2) Staggs spends 1 week in a Bali rehab facility
Step 3) Staggs signs with Souths/Roosters for $250K a season on a 'lifeline' contract
Step 4) Staggs plays State of Origin next season

Is this something new? Because if it I'm starting to see why Wolfie might be reluctant to go all in with him.
Right now I feel like telling him to go golfing with uncle Nick.

actually sounds like it is being blown out of proportion. **** all would be made of it if it was a Roosters or Souths player

Fox are reporting that he "made unwelcome advances" to a girl at a pub. he didn't grope her or touch her (otherwise that would be assault and police would be involved)

so basically he is 22 year old bloke that hit on a chick in a pub (probably more than once) ... who among us can honestly say we haven't done the same thing.

I'd knock his contract offer down .. but because his options are dwindling, rather than this incident

Honestly who gives a shit - the bloke is a flog.

Hard to tell without knowing all the details if he was just flirting or being sleazy. Either way. Pull the contract and walk away now. He isn't learning his lesson and we need a no dickheads policy and Kotoni is a dickhead.

A total halfwit but most players are. But this halfwit is devastating with ball in hand and the Broncos desperately need him to be part of their future.
Exactly, a football team full academic clean skins is a pipe dream, plenty of them are flogs .

Off field dramas, massive injury, non-spine position, dragging out contract negotiations. Offer him 400k and tell him he has 2 weeks to sign it.
