Newcastle Knights forward Willie Mason has been charged with drink driving after allegedly blowing over the legal limit while on his way to training on Monday morning.
Mason will face court on February the 20th.
It is unfortunate timing for Mason who was one of the big names promoting the Auckland 9’s next month. Based on what has happened in the past to players caught drink driving, and with Mason’s profile, I wouldn’t be surprised of Mason was suspended and not able to take part in the Auckland 9’s now.
The NRL Integrity Unit has had a few issues to deal with in recent weeks. The Knights have at at least three players who have found themselves in trouble with the law.
The most shocking thing in all of this? The Newcastle Knights are having early morning training sessions on a public holiday Monday!
