Damaging rumours have today been reported on Fox Sports, with the outlet claiming up to six Brisbane players were partying on Sydney’s Oxford Street on Saturday night.
Fox Sports‘ George Clarke reports that David Fifita, Payne Haas, Matt Gillett, Andrew McCullough, Anthony Milford and Corey Oates were all witnessed playing pokies at Harpoon Harry’s hotel in Surry Hills, although reports have stopped short of claiming any alcohol was consumed by the playing group.
The Broncos found themselves in the NRL history books for all the wrong reasons the following day, suffering a record 58-0 loss to Parramatta at Bankwest Stadium to end their season in horrid fashion.
Some of the accused parties were among Brisbane’s worst on a dark day. Oates, McCullough and Fifita committed four of the side’s seven handling errors between them, while Milford’s tackle efficiency of 62.5 per cent was the worst in the team.
Milford did, however, have one of the side’s paltry two line breaks and racked up 250 kicking metres with his backline under siege.
The Broncos have confirmed the reports, although they did claim no curfew was broken.
