It’s time to stop excusing NRL ‘bad boys’ for their toxic behaviour towards women

The NRL will enact a ‘no-fault policy’ where players are stood down until matters are legally resolved following a spate of alleged crimes against women.

In the past six months alone, six players have been accused of ‘serious offences against women’.

The reports of this kind of violent behaviour, however, have been well documented for many years – including against high profile players who have been welcomed back into the game and given chance after chance to further their football careers.

Up until now, they have offered too many protections to high performing players, sending a message that a talent for the game is more important than upholding their own code of conduct or even abiding by the law.
