Walker first test of Greenberg's new powers

NRL boss CEO Todd Greenberg has opened up on how the NRL will deal with players taking legal action, should they choose to do so, if they are stood down under the game's No Fault stand down policy.

"The NRL stresses that we are making no judgement on his guilt or innocence".

Meanwhile Bolton will be able to play for the Cowboys in round six after the NRL slapped him with a five-game ban after pleading guilty to a common assault charge from past year.

"We can not afford to ever have an off-season like this again", he said.

"If there was a grading in our system for stupidity, this behaviour would be at the very top end", Greenberg said.

It was decided not to suspend him because this is an historical incident with the videos dating back five years and due to the Player's incorrect assumption that the material would not reach a broader audience.

"Equally Dylan's welfare is paramount to us and we will continue to provide full support to him and his family".

"Naturally we are disappointed to lose Dylan from our playing squad".

The Canterbury marquee recruit was fined 10 per cent of his 2019 salary - believed to be around $50,000 - after the leaking previous year of three videos that showed him engaged in sexual acts.

The NRL said it had refused a request by Sydney club Wests Tigers to register new recruit Zane Musgrove, who was charged with alleged indecent assault of a woman at a bar in November.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman: It’s ‘very clear’ Trump committed obstruction of justice
Nadler's announcement comes as the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller appears to be nearing an end. Several US congressional committees are pursuing investigations focusing on Trump.

Both Jack de Belin and Dylan Walker were stood down by the NRL under the new policy. He will also have to address the players of every NRL club during Magic Round in Brisbane in May.

Napa received good news, being fined just 10 per cent of his salary - at around $50,000 - for the lewd videos that were leaked over the summer. Dylan Walker, whose domestic violence charge will be heard in May, was also stood down by Greenberg until his case is concluded.

The former NSW Origin representative will be unavailable while his matter is before the courts.

A breach notice proposing a fine of $750,000 has been issued to the club but $500,000 of this will be suspended because it was the club, led by CEO Barry Russell, which initially self-reported salary cap discrepancies to the NRL.

Walker has pleaded not guilty and his partner Alexandra Ivkovic has retracted initial statements made to police.

Walker's assault case was adjourned on Tuesday in Manly Local Court, after a five-hour hearing, until May 10.

After a meeting of the Australian Rugby League Commission yesterday policies towards players charged with serious crimes have changed.

But with fans aghast and sponsorship under threat, the league declared it would automatically stand down players accused of crimes carrying a maximum jail term of 11 years or more.

Facing a media conference for the second time in two days, NRL CEO Greenberg announced further penalties for player misbehaviour and club punishments for salary cap breaches.
