Apparently there is legal argument going on - maybe charges and penalties etc.
By the time the case is settled he will have missed a large chunk of his career as short as footy careers are.
I still think the NRL got it wrong.
If a player is charged they should only be stood down until their FIRST court appearance when they Enter a Plea.
If its Not Guilty then they should be presumed INNOCENT until found other wise.
If they plead Guilty then the NRL can punish them for bringing disrepute to the game or what ever else they want to presume.

Following the 1975 grand final, Dragons legend Robert Stone swapped jerseys with the Roosters’ Ron Coote. The Stone family - represented by son Michael - returned the jersey to Ron earlier this week, who lost all his memorabilia in the tragic South Coast fires. Coote was a great Roosters player.

Halfback, fullback, wing. Tristan Sailor has played them all but maybe father knows best.

Dad Wendell Sailor believes his son is best suited to the No.1 jersey, which may not be in focus just yet with Zac Lomax being promised that spot with the Dragons for Round 1 of the 2020 season.

I tend to agree - and Lomax can play centre. Lomax really reminds me of Chang.

Tristan might be a good FB but his size like Dufty could be an issue.
Only time will tell but his versatility makes him a very valuable young player.

St George Illawarra are confident their $2.1 million three-year deal will be enough to keep Kangaroos forward Tyson Frizell at the club.

The Dragons are locked in a battle with Newcastle for Frizell but hope their deal — which includes the third year with an option in Frizell’s favour — has put them in the box seat to keep the 28-year-old.

It’s understood the Dragons have offered about $1.5 million in the first two years.

The Warriors also had a crack but Frizell is expected to decide between the Dragons and the Knights.

The Corrimal Cougars junior was hopeful of locking down a deal before the start of the season but that is unlikely.

Frizell and Canberra winger Nick Cotric are the only incumbent Australian players off-contract at season’s end.

And Frizell isn’t the only player the Dragons are throwing cash at.

They are in serious discussions with Manly’s Moses Suli and have offered the 21-year-old a three-year deal which would make him one of the NRL’s highest paid centres.

Dragons forward Tariq Sims will need to win at the judiciary in order to avoid a one-week suspension.

Sims was handed a grade one dangerous contact (head/neck) charge following a 76th-minute collision with Josh Reynolds in his side's loss to the Wests Tigers at WIN Stadium on Sunday night.

Sims' was one of four charges to come out of Sunday's matches.

The grading would usually mean the charged player could avoid suspension with an early guilty plea, but the 50% loading Sims has following a similar offence in the last two years put him over 100 points.

If Sims goes to the judiciary and loses, he will still miss just one match.

Sims' Dragons teammate Paul Vaughan can avoid suspension with an early guilty plea for a dangerous contact charge.

Dragons forward Tariq Sims will miss the round two meeting with the Panthers after accepting a one-match ban for a grade one dangerous contact charge on Tigers playmaker Josh Reynolds.

Sims' teammate Paul Vaughan also took an early plea for a dangerous contact charge but is free to face the Panthers with 75 carry-over points against his name.

Vaughan would've been suspended for a game if he had unsuccessfully challenged the charge at the judiciary.

The St George Illawarra Dragons have today announced Ryan Webb as the club's new chief executive officer.
Webb's appointment concludes an all-encompassing four-month process following Brian Johnston's decision in November to step away from the role.
