Rugby league is embroiled in more drama, with a Queensland Origin player reportedly accused of assault after a late-night bonding session in Brisbane.
It has emerged that winger Will Chambers was at the centre of a complaint after allegedly pushing a patron at at the Down Under Bar at 2am on Wednesday, the same venue that coach Mal Meninga fell foul of last year when he moved behind the bar to pour a beer.
No charges have been laid but the Queensland Rugby League said in a statement they were beginning investigations.
