    Ben Barba's been sacked by the North Queensland Cowboys, before even making an appearance for the NRL club

    Ben Barba's been sacked by the North Queensland Cowboys, before even making an appearance for the NRL club

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    Several Australian media outlets are reporting the former Dally M medalist was involved in an incident at a Townsville casino on Australia Day, which breached the terms of his contract.

    The fullback was set to return to the NRL for the 2019 season ,after spending two years with Saint Helens in the UK Super League.

    It's another black mark on the NRL off-season, which has been tarnished by several off-field incidents.
