"Rugby League Players Should Be In Jail Except For The 80 Minutes They Play Each Week"

After news this week that a US judge has ordered former Wests Tigers player Matt Lodge to pay $1.2 million to the victims of his Manhattan rampage, Roy & HG on The Sporting Probe have said that perhaps the NRL should change the way it manages its players.

'This is a rugby league story that is too difficult to describe because you think you're making it up all the time," HG said.

"I've often said this, and I know you support this: rugby league players should be in jail except for the 80 minutes they play each week.

"You could take a chance and let a few out, but I think it would only disappoint you in the end.

"Do you think he's submitting a video to clubs of his rampage so he can show them, well this is what I can do to ordinary people, imagine what I could at your club?

"The Catholic Church has nothing on redemption compared to rugby league."
