    The right decision IMO.

    Jesse Bromwich, Kevin Proctor dropped from World Cup squad as police continue investigation into cocaine allegations
    • Disgraced Kiwis league captain Jesse Bromwich and team-mate Kevin Proctor have been axed from the World Cup squad after their Canberra drugs scandal.

      New Zealand Rugby League chief executive Alex Hayton and Kiwis coach David Kidwell confirmed the hefty penalty at a press conference in Sydney on Monday.

      The World Cup, to be co-hosted by New Zealand and Australia from October 27 till December 2, is still some time away but the decision to overlook two of the Kiwis' key forwards for the big tournament shows how seriously the incident is viewed.

      Kevin Proctor faces the Gold Coast Titans board this week after stepping down as co-captain in the wake of drug-taking allegations the night of the Kiwis test.


      Bromwich and Proctor admitted in separate statements they were too drunk to remember if they took any illegal drugs early on Saturday after their heavy loss to the Kangaroos.

      Bromwich has been heavily sanctioned by his Melbourne Storm club, and both men stepped down from their respective captaincy roles with the Kiwis and Gold Coast Titans on Sunday. Police charges haven't been ruled out, either.

      ACT police said on Monday it was too early to say if charges would be laid, after the pair were allegedly filmed on CCTV cameras snorting a white substance.

      "The investigation is ongoing with ACT Policing reviewing all available information and evidence. At this stage ACT Policing is unable to provide a specific timeframe in relation to this investigation," it said in a statement.

      Canberra man Adrian Mark Crowther, 38, appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court on Saturday after allegedly selling cocaine to the two Kiwis players.

      Court documents said CCTV allegedly captured Crowther preparing a white substance on his phone in Canberra's Petrie Plaza, near Cube Nightclub about 5.10am on Saturday.

      Police alleged the video showed Crowther offer the phone to two men, both of whom allegedly inhaled it through rolled bank notes.

      Bromwich stood down as Kiwis captain and from the Storm's leadership group which includes Kangaroos skipper Cameron Smith.

      Seen as one of the best forwards in the game and a Storm skipper-in-waiting, Bromwich will miss the club's next two NRL games against Gold Coast and South Sydney, will donate his A$20,000 test fee to charity and be required to undergo counselling.

      "A two-week suspension for Jesse Bromwich is going to have a significant impact on the team. He's stood down from his leadership role. A playing fee for a test match is $20,000 ... they're hefty penalties," said Storm chief executive David Donaghy.

      "Jesse's acknowledged that he's put himself at risk, he's put the club at risk, he's done the wrong thing."

      Proctor will learn his club's punishment later this week when he faces the Titans board, but has already stepped down as co-captain and from playing duties.

      "The board may decide any further sanctions that may be imposed as a result of a breach of the NRL code of conduct," said Titans chief executive Graham Annesley.

      Kidwell appointed Bromwich Kiwis captain when he took over last October, in place of Simon Mannering, so was faced with a big decision on whether to drop him for the showpiece tournament.

      "I need to meet with senior management, with New Zealand Rugby League, with senior players in the team and collectively we'll come up with a solution," Kidwell said earlier on Monday.

      "We'll work closely with the clubs and monitor them, the World Cup is five months away.

      "But again, they broke my trust and their Kiwis team-mates' trust and they'll have to work extremely hard to regain that."

      Another Kiwis player Shaun Kenny-Dowall, who wasn't selected for last week's test, is due to face Sydney's Downing Centre Local court on June 21 after being charged with drug possession.

      The Sydney Roosters outside back was arrested at the Ivy nightclub in Sydney at about 1am on Friday after allegedly being found with 0.46 grams of cocaine by police.

    I agree with the decision but the NZRL would know people would come at them hard if it was anything less so all they've managed to do is save face, DK on the other hand sounded keen for them to play in the World Cup clearly he's been overruled but that just adds further questions about his judgement imo.

    Did kidwell want them still? Tells you how bad his culture is. I have no doubt they were on drugs at the four nations final last year.

    According to the interview he gave on Radiosport this morning his gut feeling was that they should be playing in the World Cup this year.

    I'm over it. No more
    Bromwich and Proctor have done in one night what nearly a quarter of a century of supporting the Warriors hasn't been able to do.
    Enough
    I am so sick of under performing dick heads and prima donnas and the hypocrisy that is league
    There must be something better to do with my time

    Would the Titans have enough grounds to sack Proctor and save heaps of money from what's been an below average signing for them so far?

    Not a big name, but another fuckwit caught with cocaine

    Young Cronulla Sharks player caught up in NRL cocaine scandal

    THE Cronulla Sharks have been rocked by another cocaine scandal just 72 hours after Link has been hidden. Please Register to view..

    Holden Cup player Jess Savage is facing charges of allegedly possessing 1.4 grams of white powder, believed to be cocaine, in the early hours of Sunday morning outside Fusion nightclub in Cronulla.

    Savage is a highly regarded footballer who suffered a season-ending knee injury in round three of the competition in March.

    Police confirmed the incident in a statement to The Daily Telegraph.

    “About 1am yesterday (Sunday, May 7), police were called to a licensed premises on Cronulla St, Cronulla, and spoke to a 20-year-old man,” the statement read.

    “Police had cause to search the man and allegedly located two small resealable bags containing 1.4 grams of a white powder, believed to be cocaine.

    “The items were seized, and will undergo forensic examination.

    “The man was issued a Field Court Attendance Notice charged with possess prohibited drug.

    “He will appear at Sutherland Local Court on Thursday, June 1.”

    Police sources said Savage was seen acting suspiciously by security inside Fusion nightclub at Cronulla and police were called to the premises.

    It is claimed staff saw what they believed to be drugs being handed to Savage by an unidentified person inside the club.

    Cronulla have informed the NRL’s integrity unit about the club’s latest crisis and started their own investigation.

    “The club is aware of the situation and is conducting its own investigation,’’ a club spokesman told The Daily Telegraph.

    Savage previously played for the Brisbane Broncos and Gold Coast Titans.

    His contract is up this season and the club will make a decision on his future once he has been to court.

    Agreed, you can't come out on radio in the morning and say my gut feeling is that these players will be there at the World Cup then in the afternoon in a presser say it's my decision to rule them both out.

    Who is he trying to fool, he clearly didn't make the decision at all but the way he fronted that press conference this afternoon was like it was all him, his decision, his call.

    Kidwell's been talking a lot of shit for a while now which isn't helping the matter, in the after match he's talking up his preperation, his game plan and the second half performance, he needs to recognise this is the big show you can't puff your chest out like your down the pub, piss on someone's leg and tell them it's raining.

    No-ones interested in his excuses.

    Paul Green has stated that he's interested, he's approached a few people in Australia about it in terms of whether it'll effect his chances of coaching Queensland at a later date but has been assured it won't be a problem.

    At the moment his focus is on the Cowboys and he won't be making a decision on the Kiwis assistant job until later in the season.

    i wouldnt of banned them from the world cup. i would take a different approach. not come out and publicly say they were banned. i just wouldnt of picked them and blacklisted them privately. whats going to hurt more? being banned or being apparently eligible and not being picked
