Canberra Raiders duo Corey Horsburgh and Corey Harawira-Naera have both received violation notices from the NRL following impaired driving incidents.
Horsburgh last month pleaded guilty to an impaired driving charge, with the NRL today issuing him a one-game suspension and a $ 5,000 fine. The fine will be suspended for 12 months.
“The details being that on Christmas Day Horsburgh recorded a low blood alcohol level in a roadside breath test,” the NRL said in a statement.
The offense notice proposes that Horsburgh be suspended for 1 game and fined $ 5,000, with a fine suspended for 12 months. He must also attend an education program as directed by the NRL. “
While Harawira-Naera, who is no stranger to controversy after being recently allowed back into the game following involvement in last year’s schoolgirl sex scandal, returned a positive blood alcohol test on Christmas Day.
The NRL issued Harawira-Naera, 25, a notice of violation containing a two-game ban and a $ 10,000 fine.
“Police facts allege that Harawira-Naera’s blood alcohol level was average. Harawira-Naera has indicated that he will plead guilty to the allegations when he appears in ACT Magistrates’ Court on March 25, “said the statement from the NRL.
The offense notice proposes that Harawira-Naera be suspended for 2 games and fined $ 10,000. He must also attend an education program as directed by the NRL.
“The penalties take into account a number of factors, including the player’s previous infractions and the blood alcohol range.”
The two stars will also be required to complete an educational program run by the NRL.
