High Profile Player With A Drug Problem?

There’s rumours about a really big-name NRL player that has a drug problem – and a major one. He’s a State of Origin player and a Kangaroo.

This is taken from http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/sport/a-star-in-need-of-help/story-e6freye0-1225757046952

His team-mates know about it and we’d suggest his coach and CEO know about it, too.They haven’t put the player up for an in-house drug test and we presume it’s because it would ruin their finals hopes. This smacks of the Andrew Johns situation in Newcastle that went on for years and years. The coach, the CEO and the doctor knew Joey had a drug and alcohol problem. So did most people in Newcastle, who had seen his behaviour slip to unacceptable levels. But the Knights couldn’t afford to have the world’s best player on the sidelines for an extended period because it would have cost them gate takings and premiership points. So here we are in 2009 and the game has another dirty secret that no one will deal with. This guy’s behaviour has been out of line for some time. Last week, Queensland officials tried to convince us nothing untoward happened in the lead-up to Origin III. If David Gallop cares to ring us, we’ll pass on his name.
Any ideas on who you think this player might be?

Rumour has it that when Andrew Johns was caught in England a few years ago with the pill in his pocket, he was out with another very high profile player – Darren Lockyer. Do the math maybe??

    I have this weird feeling it may be Johnathan Thurston. Hopefully I am wrong.References :

    You know Cowboys, for some reason I’m with you, I think JT as well.
    Queensland Officials means he’s a QLDer, and JT out would hurt the Cowboys pretty bad.
    But it’s just a theory.References :

  7. Kelly L says:

    Apparently the brisbane broncos are being investigated by the NRL, so it could be one of them(I hope not). Justin hodges is the most likely for some reason but we shouldnt speculateReferences :

    Lockyer or Hodges

    If it’s Lockyer it will be swept under the rug because he is the Aussie captain.References :
