Brawling Broncos learn fate over drunken fight
Brisbane players Payne Haas and Albert Kelly have been hit with one-game bans as well as fines for their drunken bust-up.
A video was last week leaked of the pair involved in a scuffle, which allegedly took place on a trip to Sydney a fortnight earlier.
The Broncos, NRL, and NSW Police all launched investigations into the incident.
The NRL has now announced one-game bans for the pair, as well as a $10,000 fine for Haas and a $5000 fine for Kelly.
They each have five days to appeal the penalties.
If they accept, Haas will be unavailable to play against Penrith on Friday night.
Kelly is currently out injured, so it’s unknown when he will serve his suspension.
NSW Police are yet to announce the result of their investigation.
That could have ramifications for Haas in particular, who is on a good behaviour bond for abusing a police officer last year.
