Billy Slater's World Cup has likely been ended by an injury suffered against the USA.
Australian Rugby League team management can confirm player Billy Slater was detained by police on Monday and has been released without charge.

After reviewing CCTV footage of a scuffle outside a Manchester nightclub, police have determined that Slater was the victim who then acted in self-defence and has informed him of his right to press charges.

Billy was returning to the venue to collect his jacket that he left behind when he was attacked. Both men were detained for several hours while police reviewed footage of the incident.

The Australian team players were free of official duties after returning from Ireland.
