They must be.
Withdrawing money from an ATM
Going back to get your Jacket.

Nobody goes out around Manchester in a jacket, this obviously brought attention to himself sparking a heated row as to whether he was just 'showing off' which ended badly!

So a young man, one of the best players in the world goes into a nightclub in our country, is attacked and then questioned about the incident.
Subsequently he is shown to be the victim and people on here gloat.
What a way to welcome visitors who have royally entertained us.

He's an Aussie and therefore fair game for a a bit of ridicule.

Report in The Mail says that he was getting his coat at 02:40. If I was part of the Australian management team this would be the part of the incident that I would be most concerned about as one of their elite athletes is prepared to disrupt his sleep pattern.

They get free days on tour though.

Already a few tourists are feeling homesick, it has to be a balance.

 

Has does the England camp enforce curfews when they have allowed players to return home between matches in some cases?

They don't seem to have an alcohol ban or curfew so he's done nothing wrong!

HAJAHAHHHAJAJAHAHAHA

 

I fail to see what is funny about this incident to be honest. 

 

We have had an exceptional World Cup so far, so what do Sky and the BBC report? great games, great crowds, great comradery?  No, a  punch up in a nightclub.

 

It only highlights how eager they are to knock RL and incidents like this don't help at all, they just fuel anti League bias

Indeed. I for one am more than happy for them all to keep partying hard on this tour. :D

Good job they're not based in Newcastle, he'd have probably got into a fight for having a coat

Because if it was one of our lads in Oz the media would be demanding his immediate extradition and scouring his disciplinary record!

I hope Billy Slater presses charges as the plice invited him to do.

 

This would mean more coverage but also show that some scrote took it upon himself to have a go and (as usual) the player has no option to defend himself.

another example of something that was prob "something and nothing" been blown out of all proportion by blanket news media, twitter , forumsetc etc, you prob wouldn't have even heard about it 10 years ago, lets get on with the game

I didn't say that but robbed and in a fight in only a couple of weeks sounds a bit unlucky for a small group of players, I doubt they are in the nightclub every night.

 

I am pretty positive the English team should stop going anywhere there is Alcohol.

I have been going to Manchester for almost 40 years, and I have managed to stay away from being mugged.

 

Oh. sorry, I just realised i disagreed with you. Off you go to report me now. Go on then.

Let's hope the Aussies are enjoying the weather as well.

What a total non news story...Rugby player goes out has a few drinks and gets into a bit of a scuffle. Happens in every northern town every weekend, and laughed about in every Sunday club the days after. Rubbish Journalism from HM Gutter Press!!
