Parramatta Eels forward Mitchell Allgood was served with a two-year good behaviour bond on Tuesday for the charge of driving under the influence of alcohol – midrange.
The court's decision comes after Allgood pleaded guilty to the charge in September, then completed a driving offenders course and visited the Royal Rehabilitation Clinic in Ryde to see first hand some of the consequences of drink driving.
Allgood also incurred a club-sanctioned fine, the proceeds of which will be donated to the charity of his choice.
"I am very thankful for the fair hearing but completely understand that my actions put not just myself but others at risk," Allgood said.
"I am glad that the matter has now been dealt with and I can now concentrate on working hard at training and in the community."
