Canberra Raiders star Curtis Scott risks strong exclusion and fine from NRL for nightclub incident

An announcement of the breach has been made by the NRL to Canberra Raiders star Curtis Scott, who is proposing the center be given a heavy suspension and fined for his involvement in a nightclub match back in May.

The 23-year-old faces a three-match quarantine and a $ 15,000 fine for the incident, which was captured on video at Kokomo’s nightclub in the country’s capital.

Scott has five days to respond to the breach announcement, which, if confirmed by the NRL, will see an existing suspended fine of $ 15,000 activated – a penalty given to the player in 2020 for an intoxicated incident on Australia Day in Moore Park.

Scott – who has been ruled out of the Raiders since Round 14 – will not miss more playing time, however, as the matches he has already missed count in his quarantine.

Scott is believed to be in the COVID-affected Sydney and will likely have to be quarantined before returning to Canberra for possible team selection.

Canberra have yet to respond to the results of the NRL’s investigation, and Scott’s career at the club is still believed to be in the air.

Sydney Morning Herald reporter Danny Weidler broke the news on Twitter about Scott’s nightclub indiscretion back in May via social media.

Canberra then confirmed the news Monday morning, revealing that the center would be rejected from all club duties as the NRL integrity unit investigates it.

“The Canberra Raiders have been alerted to an alleged incident involving Curtis Scott,” the statement said.

“The club has informed the NRL Integrity Unit and is working with them to investigate the incident.

“Until the investigation is complete, Curtis has been fired from all club duties.

“Raiders will not comment further on the matter until the investigation is complete.”
