ARL Commissioner and rugby league legend Mark Coyne has been stood down by the commission chair Peter Beattie following an incident in Singapore.

Coyne was last night finally set to return to Australia from Singapore after having his passport withheld for nearly seven weeks following allegations he used “vile and disgusting” language towards public officials.
The Herald understands Coynewas apprehended under Section 6 of the Singapore Crimes Act following an argument with a cab driver outside Singapore’s Grand Hyatt hotel on the night of June 2.

He had been unable to leave the island state, with his case held over by local authorities, but was finally flying out after negotiating a $4000 fine.



It is understood Coyne reported the incident to the ARLC only on Tuesday, possibly following an inquiry from the Herald on that same day, to which Coyne did not respond.

Coyne called Beattie on Tuesday afternoon and told him he had a matter going before the Singaporean court but he did not provide any details.

ARLC and NRL code-of-conduct rules make it obligatory for players, coaches and officers to self-report charges, even the prospect of being charged by police, whether overseas or in Australia.

Beattie intends to grill Coyne about the incident when he returns from a holiday through Western Australia in a week’s time.

The incident happened while the former St George Illawarra captain, Queensland hero and Australian representative was in Singapore with friends three days before the first State of Origin match. The Herald understands he was briefly held in a cell overnight and forced to surrender his passport.

The Herald understands that a shaken Coyne told Beattie he had an argument with a cab driver following a night out.

The cab driver called police, who then demanded to see Coyne’s passport. When the former Dragons international could only produce his drivers’ licence, he was detained by police and put in the back of a police car. Coyne admitted he swore at the police during the incident and was subsequently charged.


Coyne intended playing golf with friends in Indonesia before flying to Brisbane for Origin I but briefly stayed at the home of former Australian racing steward Terry Bailey, whom he knew via their Queensland connection. Bailey is now chief steward at the Singapore Racing Club and, when it was clear Coyne would remain in Singapore, his judicial position risked being compromised and Coyne moved to a hotel.

The NRL became aware of the situation via its integrity unit, which was told by law enforcement officers.







The Herald understands that throughout the ordeal, Coyne has been extremely concerned about the embarrassment to the code following a summer of shame, during which NRL players were charged with sexual and domestic assault.

Coyne is the most recent addition to the ARLC board, joining in February, and while he initially expressed opposition to the ARLC’s automatic stand-down of any player charged with an offence carrying a penalty of 11 years or more, he later agreed, making the resolution unanimous.

Coyne, who has been stood down indefinitely, can only be sacked by the commission or via a vote from the 16 NRL clubs.

Coyne’s wife, Annie, flew to meet him four days following the incident and was with him again on Tuesday, along with the chairman of the company that employs him.

Coyne will not be investigated by integrity unit head Karyn Murphy but merely interviewed by Beattie, who won’t return to Sydney for another week, because he is a commissioner.







Coyne missed all three Origin matches while in Singapore. NSW’s final try in the deciding Origin match drew comparisons with his own thrilling last-second, match-winning try in 1994.

Coyne was contacted at the time for comment but reports merely mentioned he was overseas, where he described TV coverage of the game as scratchy. Coyne has been worried about the story leaking, with many of his former teammates believing he could not fly back to Australia, owing to a middle-ear infection.

Coyne booked a flight home to Australia last week, expecting to be leaving Singapore with the matter finalised on Thursday.

I cannot understand why well paid western businessmen will pick an argument with an Asian taxi driver over a piffling fare. However they still do it, all the time.

An Aussie behaving badly thats a surprise. As for Burgess, s repeat offender doing dangerous acts. There should be a final warning given publicly for a season ban.

Now onto my other dirty play hobby horse, leg tripping. Only a fineable offence at present, that is wrong as it can result in serious injury.

I agree, back in the day playing for Mangere East Hawks tripping was an automatic send off. Yep and fining them is a real deterrent, NOT !

Not necessarily, although common.

Asian taxi drivers often bend the rules but they charge very little in Western terms. Most people just think of it as a tip, and some even tip as well. I have seen some well off Westerners really go off at taxi drivers, just crazy. Sometimes the drivers get their own back and pull a knife, that sobers them up, if they don't get killed in the process, and that happens sometimes as well.

Aussies might be loud, but Asians can be really stroppy when offended.

Oh dear...there is more:
Details have emerged of the language that Australian Rugby League commissioner and former league star Mark Coyne used towards a police officer during his drunken arrest in Singapore.

Coyne called a police officer a "f---ing stupid idiot", a "f---ing dickhead" and a "cock", according to a court document detailing his arrest for abusing a public servant in Singapore in the early hours of June 2.
The foul-mouthed tirade was directed at Sergeant Dominic Song Guo Quan of the Singapore Police Force, and happened both at the site of Coyne’s arrest in Singapore’s ritzy Orchard Road district and in transit to the nearest police station.

In addition to calling the officers "f---ing cocks" and "f---ing dogs", he also threatened to "sue you through your f---ing arse" and told the officers that "if some f---ing stupid c--- sues me, I don’t care. Especially you".
He also told police "you guys are f---ing crazy", "you guys must be f---ing embarrassed" and "you must be so f---ing proud of yourselves".

The insults were delivered in English, according to the documents.
On Wednesday a Singapore court fined Coyne $4000 over the incident. Under Singapore’s criminal code, a maximum fine of $5000 and up to 12 months in prison can be imposed for "threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour towards or to a public servant".

Coyne, who is the most recent addition to the Australian Rugby League Commission, has been stood down indefinitely by chairman Peter Beattie. He can only be sacked by the commission - the governing body of rugby league in Australia - or by a vote of the 16 NRL clubs.

The incident happened while the former St George Illawarra captain, Queensland hero and Australian representative was in Singapore with friends three days before the first State of Origin match.

Heyzeuss spare me :rolleyes: These are the idiots running the game.

When in Asia:

Rule number 1: Always have your passport.
Rule number 2. If you don't have your passport and you don't pay the taxi driver what he wants, you are going to the Police Station.
Rule number 3. When an Asian Policeman says jump. Your only reply, if any, should be how high sir?:sorry:
Rule number 4. Short Asian cops don't especially like Westerners, and showering them with F bombs doesn't help.:mad:
Rule number 5 (If required) If you have broken rule number 4, definitely do not rinse and repeat.:wtf:
No wonder the game is in a bloody mess.

The club on Thursday confirmed playmaker Mason Lino was involved in a “low-level” incident.

The Newcastle Herald reports Lino was involved in an altercation with two other people at the Greenroof Hotel on Saturday night.

It’s the same venue his teammate Jacob Saifiti got into a fight at and broke his leg in December.

A statement from club boss Phil Gardner confirmed they would consider banning players from attending certain establishments.

Never thought I'd see young Mase in the naughty corner, just shows what happens when you go to live with a pack of criminals
did he actually do anything wrong? or is it just a case that there is troublemakers at the venue and the club are banning the players to keep them from ending up in a bad situation?

No further details yet but the Warriors jokes must get under your skin when you go to a new club, maybe he couldn't take it any more
