The National Rugby League today confirmed St George Illawarra Dragons player Jack de Belin will remain subject to a No-Fault Stand Down after the jury in his criminal trial was discharged after being unable to reach a verdict.
NRL Chief Executive Andrew Abdo said the No-Fault Stand Down continues to apply while a player is charged with a serious offence that carries a maximum sentence of 11 years or more.
"The No-Fault Stand Down rule is not about forming a view on the guilt or innocence of an individual, it is about protecting the values and reputation of the game while a serious criminal process is underway.
"Mr de Belin will remain subject to the no-fault stand down rule until his criminal proceedings have been determined by the Court."
The NRL will continue to monitor the outcome of Mr de Belin’s criminal proceedings.
