General NRL & Union Drugs Scandal 2015

You know Mole releases Harrison's name like that - end the suspense and release the NZ person's name, so damage control can begin - Price is right
Exactly right. By dropping the NZ carrot out there and not naming anyone, he is effectively implicating all the Warriors players past and present until someone is named...

And if nothing comes... (Like the Broncos rumours so far) are we always thinking someone is hiding something??

Apparently the release from the CCC indicated it was a player in NZ (not necessarily a NZ player), Mole didn't break that piece of news, just regurgitated it.

QLD Reds are currently in NZ, just saying.

And as I type that, this comes in....

Former Gold Coast Titans player Ashley Harrison charged in drug scandal to add to NRL club's woes

Updated 9 minutes ago

Former Gold Coast Titans NRL player Ashley Harrison has been charged as part of an investigation into a south-east Queensland cocaine trafficking syndicate.

The 33-year-old has been issued with a Notice to Appear in court next month.

The Queensland Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) has also obtained an arrest warrant for a 28-year-old man who is currently overseas.

It will be alleged Harrison and the 28-year-old man contacted the syndicate to get cocaine for personal use or to on-supply to friends and colleagues between June 2014 and November 2014.

The 28-year-old will be arrested when he returns from overseas on 10 counts of dangerous supply of a drug.

Five current Titans players, an ex-player and Super Rugby recruit Karmichael Hunt have already been charged.

The NRL club stood down Titans players Beau Falloon, Jamie Dowling, Greg Bird, Dave Taylor and Kalifa Faifai Loa after they were charged.

The Commission says it does not expect to make any further arrests of current or former athletes during its investigation.
The last line of the article Jordan G posted is good to hear; means the scandal isn't going to get a lot bigger. Hopefully now it's just a matter of going through the legal process.

Maybe the Broncos players or former Broncos players could just have been Harrison and Michaels. Their offending most likely happened while at the Titans it just sounds better adding the Broncos element.

Also pleased none of our players are involved even with having a few former Titans players in our squad.

During the ASADA investigation wasn't there a story of there being a vile stuck in one of the pipes at their stadium?
