Auckland, New Zealand, September 20, 2012 – Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah today confirmed the club had taken disciplinary action against some of its NYC players following an incident in their Sydney hotel after Saturday night’s season-ending finals loss to the Roosters.

He said the players involved would be fined and further sanctions would also be imposed.

“We were informed by team management early on Sunday morning about an incident involving players in our NYC team,” said Scurrah.

“There were complaints of noise from guests in three rooms in the hotel.

“Players had gathered in two of the hotel rooms and alcohol was a factor. Given the club has a strict no-alcohol policy for our NYC players we’re extremely disappointed they disregarded it.”

Scurrah said the hotel’s duty manager had called the police.

“We’ve spoken to New South Wales police. They said no further action will be taken and the matter was closed.”

Scurrah said the club’s management acted as soon as the team and management returned home.

“We’ve spoken to everyone in the team. We’ve dealt with the matter and we’re continuing to deal with it,” he said.

“We’ve also been in contact with the hotel and have apologised for what happened. All matters relating to the incident have been satisfactorily resolved with the hotel.

“The hotel have written to us and said: ‘Thank you for your support and taking the matter seriously and professionally’. They said they appreciated our ‘promptness’ in dealing with it.

“We insisted on reimbursing room charges to the three complainants as well as covering costs for cleaning and some minor damage.”

Scurrah said the matter was unacceptable.

“We’ve never had an incident like this involving our NYC team. We expect the highest standards from our players, which makes this even more disappointing.”
