Thuggish Rugby Players

Recommended Posts

Loosi Filipo is just another example of the type of ordinary citizen that Rugby Union produces. Year after year we see the likes of Filopi assaulting strangers on the street and causing harm to innocent strangers. Rugby Union could take a leave out of Rugby League's book on how to create systems that lead to better behaviour by players.

Listen up Koozer, rugby yawnion is still the GGOA. Filipo submitted his CV to the Warriors and was turned away until he had a bit more street sense.....or was that beating more people in the street senseless.

What absolute bollocks. Look at all the trouble Rugby Union has with it's players once they get on the turps. Keith Murdoch, ...the list goes on.

People change once they get under that hot Australian sun. It does strange things to you. Plus Russell said sorry which is more than Filopi did.

Filipo plead guilty and offered to do Restorative Justice sessions with the victim. they turned down that offer.

Koozer, you need to check yaself in. This was a crime at the extreme end of the scale. Sure ya get the odd boozy ones every so often on a night out, Zac Guildford etc but it's hardly every man and his dog. Look at League then look at Union, then look at League again and check yaself in.

Perhaps if someone stumped on your head after knocking seven shades of shit out of you then you'd be reluctant to accept a false apology. You sound like a typical rugby rah rah kind of guy.

Pot, Kettle, Black realist. Your the one that needs you're head red. How about George Moala - assault with intent to injure. Julian Severe - assault on a female. Their not at the extreme end of the scale???!!! Rugby players have always been worst behaved than league players - you can't believe everything you read in the media.

Keith Murdoch circa 1973

long time between drinks 

Doesn't matter. The NZ Rugby Union made sure they got Murdoch out of the country before he got sent to jail for almost killing the guy he hit...and then they tried to make it sound like Murdoch went missing without them knowing about it. Biggest lie ever told. They had already set him up with a job in the Northern Territory working in the sugar cane fields which is where he ended up.

Anyway, Rugby doesn't have this problem on its own. There are other sports in New Zealand that have their issues like softball, cycling and ten pin bowling.

Greg Bird x4, Mitchell Pearce x3, Todd Carney x3, Blake Ferguson x4, Corey Norman posession of drugs and consorting with criminals, Russell Packer 1 years prison for assault,  Zane Tetevano had his contract torn up after admitting to bashing his girlfriend on four occasions. Kirisome Auva’a two year good behaviour bond for domestic violence. Robert Lui domestic violence, Greg Inglis, Semi Radadra,James Segeyaro, Shaun Kenny Dowall............I could go on all day

Shaun Keeny Dowall was found not guilty. You should get your facts right.

Yea I'm well aware of that. But as the NRL Integrity unit have always said. Allegations guilty or not, still looks bad for the game. The Police don't open formal investigations if there is next to no evidence do they? The long and short of it Koozer is that League players bring the game into disrepute far more often than Union.

Not lately they haven't. All those examples you have quoted happened years ago so your argument is out of date. Whereas Filopi has been running around Wellington stomping on the heads of innocent citizens only this year.

And now Aaron Smith is being sent home from an all blacks tour joining Keith Murdoch in the hall of shame. Can't ever remember a league player being sent home from a tour.

For having sex with a compliant female ( not that I'm condoning or passing judgement on this ).......how many league players have we seen now having sex with non compliant animals ??
