Blake Fergusons fate has yet to be revealed but I will update this page when news comes out.
Dugan should not be allowed to play in the NRL again until get goes through a counselling program.
After being sacked by the Canberra Raiders Josh Dugan should not be allowed to step back into another NRL team an penalize the Raiders for trying to uphold a standard that all players should easily adhere to.
We can’t expect players to think twice about poor behaviour if they know that they will get a second, third and fourth chance.
