Albert Kelly's brief tenure with Newcastle has officially ended after the club confirmed the controversial five-eighth had been sacked over a nightclub incident. It is understood officials had wanted to terminate Kelly's contract two weeks ago after he was accused of smashing a light at Newcastle nightspot Fannys, but coach Wayne Bennett intervened and he was suspended until a court appearance on Tuesday. Earlier this season Cronulla discarded him because of a string of alcohol-related incidents. ''We offered Albert an opportunity to move to Newcastle to focus on his rugby league career under the guidance of Wayne Bennett,'' Knights chief Matt Gidley said. ''Unfortunately, due to further disciplinary reasons, Albert has recently had his NSW Cup contract suspended, then terminated. We wish Albert the best of luck in fulfilling his rugby league potential in the near future and thank him for his efforts.

He has a lot of natural talent... he could be another Carney, but has shown what an idiot he can be off the field, before he showed how good he can be on the field. Carney at
least proved what a talent he was, before he took his off-field behavior too far, and is why he got sooooo many chances.

I wouldn't be disappointed if the club signed him....cheap.

Good 5/8 but obviously troubled. No thanks. Let Penrith or Parramatta or someone else pick him up.
