The National Rugby League (NRL) has issued Brisbane Broncos players Payne Haas and Albert Kelly with Breach Notices alleging they brought the game into disrepute following a public incident in Sydney on 20 March.
Both players are alleged to have engaged in a physical altercation at a public venue which brought the game into disrepute.
The Notices propose that Haas be suspended for 1 match and fined $10,000. In considering the proposed penalty, the NRL has taken into account previous transgressions and his status as a senior player in the game.
It is proposed that Kelly be suspended for 1 match and fined $5000.
Both players have 5 business days to respond to the Breach Notices.
