Something like this CR?

The last para.... His employer Telstra has stood him down because it (DV) goes against what they st and for as an organisation.

Perfect.

I can’t see why it would be hard for the NRL to have a clause entered into the bargaining agreement that any player who is under certain criminal charges is stood down until resolved.

It has to be legal, Telstra did it!

Yet another half signing to a club meanwhile we are still floundering buying second grade back rowers.

After the vid I just saw of C Norman I am very glad we missed out. He will be sacked and stood down

Pretty disgusting allegations. I suspect he'll never play the game again if convicted.

If he's convicted, he's going to jail

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

It’s such a high bar to jump, the chances of conviction are pretty low.

If he’s guilty I hope he gets the full punishment. Hard to prove these type of allegations. However, police don’t make these charges without some sort of evidence.

That is a tough article to read. I know the world is a pretty **** up place but I just can't understand how anybody could treat another human being, as alleged in that article. How can you have sex with someone who clearly isn't enjoying it? I know it's just allegations at this stage and it's all difficult to prove ... I don't know what to say aside from expressing my disgust.

I’m interested to see how Ravalawa goes this year. It’s a bit of a sore point as a Raiders fan I guess but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him slot straight in given when he was signed.

Pereira did a good job for them last year but the other options seem like they’d be makeshift wingers (Dufty and Lomax)
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.
