A video has been circulated on Twitter that allegedly shows Melbourne Storm prop Nelson Asofa-Solomona fighting in Bali, with the Sydney Morning Herald reporting that the NRL Integrity Unit will be investigating the matter.
The video can be seen below:

It’s not the best footage, and apparently he was standing up for team mate Suliasi Vunivalu who had been punched, so its anyones guess how this will all play out.
While the media types will be up in arms over this, I have to say, if Nelson Asofa-Solomona was standing up for his mate, good luck to him.
While its not the best idea for professional athletes to be seen fighting in public, there are going to be consequences if you start a physical altercation with a giant human like Asofa-Solomona.
If it is proven to be him in the video he will no doubt be fined by the NRL just because the beancounters love to be seen to be doing SOMETHING.
