Rugby league players behaving badly


1. Mitchell Pearce, Sydney Roosters, Jan 2016:

The son of a famous teetotaller Pearce simulated a sex act with a dog at an Australia Day party while heavily intoxicated. The incident was not the first for Pearce, who was fined $20,000 in 2014 for an earlier indiscretion at a Kings Cross nightclub

2. Dylan Walker and Aaron Gray, South Sydney, 2015:
