Rugby's stain: Abuse of young Pacific talent

Rugby's stain: Abuse of young Pacific talent | West Coast Pirates - Rugby League in WA | Scoop.it
"Rugby league is doing some disgraceful things in Fiji - sending players one-way tickets to Australia on visas that don't allow them to play professional sport, so they are immediately breaking the law.


Then they outstay their visa, get deported and they are banned from going overseas ever again for work they might have done in the future. That is effectively a life sentence."

Ryan said agents from both league and rugby were exploiting Fijian players.

New Zealand-born Rangi Chase never quite lived up to his potential in the NRL. The former Dragons and Tigers pivot left for England in 2009 but has since carved out a reputation as being a magician with the ball.

Eddie Hayson, your homophobic rant exposes you for what you truly are: a bigot

Eddie Hayson, your homophobic rant exposes you for what you truly are: a bigot | West Coast Pirates - Rugby League in WA | Scoop.it
Last Thursday, Eddie Hayson called a media conference to set the record straight about his links to the rugby league match-fixing scandal.

Calling on the considerable powers of celebrity publicist Max Markson, the professional punter attempted to paint himself as nothing more than a misunderstood knockabout Aussie who loves a beer and a bet who also happened to provide "free sex" to footballers and jockeys at the brothel he once owned.
