NRL boss Todd Greenberg declares off-season a 'train wreck'
The assault allegation against Barba is the latest in a string of off-field indiscretions by NRL players since October, with Jarryd Hayne, Jack de Belin, Zane Musgrove, Liam Coleman and Dylan Walker also facing assault charges.
Cowboys forward Scott Bolton pleaded guilty to common assault in January and was handed a 12-month good behaviour bond.
Mr Greenberg said ..."quite frankly the off-season has been a complete train wreck,"

As Patrick Smith once wrote in The Australian:
“Anybody who dares suggest that rugby league is not a culture to despise, then they are just as stupid and boorish as the offending players”
