General Brett Seymour Assault Matter Dropped

From www.nrl.com:

Police have decided not to pursue an assault complaint against dumped Brisbane Broncos rugby league halfback Brett Seymour.

It was alleged Seymour head-butted a woman on the dance floor of the Regatta Hotel at Toowong in Brisbane's inner-west on July 31.

But one of two female complainants against Seymour withdrew her complaint while there was insufficient evidence to support taking action over the other woman's allegations.

The Broncos last week terminated the contracts of 21-year-old Seymour and utility forward Neville Costigan because they had been involved in a spate of off-field incidents.

Costigan, 21, was charged with drink-driving in Brisbane earlier this month and fined $5,000 by the Broncos before his contract was cut.

He's due to face court in Brisbane next week.

Neither Seymour or Costigan have found another club.

The Regatta Hotel was also where former Broncos captain and National Rugby League board member Gorden Tallis was alleged to have thrown a glass at a barman this week after being refused service.

He had been out socialising with his wife Christine and other ex-players when the alleged incident occurred in the early hours on Monday.

Tallis, who apologised to hotel management and the staff member, is being investigated by police following a complaint.

The 33-year-old former international's position as the News Ltd representative on the NRL board could be jeopardised if charges are laid.

Broncos coach Wayne Bennett, who was instrumental in sacking Seymour and Costigan, has defended Tallis and says he's a responsible person and "a fine man".
