Club Statement on SG Ball trial incident

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have concluded an investigation into incidents that occurred at a SG Ball trial match hosted by South Sydney Rabbitohs at Erskineville Oval on Saturday 22 January.

The Club would like to thank Souths and the NSWRL for their assistance and co-operation with the investigation.

Two current Sea Eagles pathways players were involved in the incidents and have been disciplined by the Club.

Whilst he did not instigate or provoke the altercation, Jersey Flegg player, Siua Fotu, has received a formal reprimand for his role in it.

SG Ball player, James Malau’ulu, left the reserves bench to become verbally involved in the incident.

His actions were unacceptable and a Club imposed suspension will result in Malau’ulu being unavailable to play until round three of the 2022 SG Ball competition.

“It is a privilege to play the game of Rugby League and it comes with the obligation of maintaining appropriate standards of behaviour,” said Manly CEO Stephen Humphreys.

"We will continue to work with all of our players and remind them of their responsibilities in meeting the expected standards, even when they are confronted with difficult circumstances.”
