    Allegedly attacked his partner, if true then he should have his registration voided.

    The Mail have just got the jump on it via a statement from the Cheshire Police, had to be held by police officers allegedly for possible GBH on his partner, seems as though she has jumped on a plane back to OZ.

    Everybody needs to exercise care posting on this thread for obvious reasons.

    The interesting or noteworthy thing for me.

    I watched the out of your league podcast last night.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALLl-w_1HgY&t=1592s

    The timing of the filming seemed to be after the Salford V Toronto game based on comments from Wilkin.
    "tackling Pauli Pauli". Likely to have been Sunday but regardless after Sat 3pm.

    20 mins in. Reference was made to his leaving Wigan for personal reasons. He was asked if he wanted to talk about it.
    He was given an out. He said "not now in the future". He spoke about it freely later in the cast.
    Will Perry was replaced by Gethin Jones as host, in this episode.

    Overall seemed a bit odd.

    He appeared very relaxed for someone who had been arrested and likely to be suspended.

    All a bit strange given today's announcement.

    Would be surprised if out of your league would have allowed itself to be used for PR.
    That said the question remains did the podcast team know?

    Let’s no forget, the Benny Barber is now a lorry driver because of attacking his partner. If the allegations are true I would think a similar punishment, however this is the a RFL, and if the allegations are true then will a blind eye be turned and will Sky hail the returning hero after any short ban.

    If found guilty, this will be a nice early test for Super Leagues newly found moral compass.

    Sky love a good comeback, as they did after Flower assaulted a prone half conscious player. He wasn’t a bad lad really.

    If convicted of “wounding with intent” I don’t think SL will need to worry as the starting point sentence for even the lowest level is 4 years imprisonment.
    That’s not to say he will necessarily be charged with an offence let alone be convicted. The real problem will be if not even brought to trial because a spouse refuses to cooperate ala Barba. Then SL have a potential headache. I have no inside info so all of this is speculative and hypothetical I hasten to add.

    Seen some pictures of his Mrs and she looks in a pretty bad way. If Gelling has indeed done this then hopefully everybody who's been taking the moral ground over the Folau situation will take the same stance over this incident. In many ways this is a lot worse than Folau spouting his insular views and Gelling should be sacked. I guess the BB case is the guideline that should be used and hopefully justice will be done here.

    If she is in a bad way then that is far worse than Folau mouthing off his rhetoric. If it is true I hope he gets what he deserves.

    By all accounts the photos doing the rounds on social media are from a previous accident and not this alleged incident

    Some of us are able to think there should be no room in the sport for either domestic abusers OR evangelical homophobes, it’s not ‘the moral high ground’, it’s called having principles

    Evangelical Homophobes, I am in the live and let live frame of mind I don't have any trouble with what pleasures people get from something that I find unnatural that is their choice. What does worry me is the fact that it is so widespread in the corridors of power that they can pass laws that make peoples views a Hate Crime. Are we not allowed a view on anything now ? As for Religion I don't partake in the one thing that causes more problems and trouble than anything else in the world, but if someone is religious and has views on something then surely he is entitled to air them, after all when I expire I will burn in the local crematorium as there is no such place as Hell in my life.

    Wigan and Warrington excepted)

    At risk of irking certain posters for discussing something other than rugby, I think there's a fine balance between expressing a dislike of a certain group, and inciting hate towards a certain group (especially when that group has, over the years, suffered abuse to discrimination to violent attacks)

    My own view is that if you incite hate (that could reasonably lead to abuse and/or violence) then there's a good argument for the law to become involved.

    I also think there needs to be a distinction between what a person is born like (race, gender, sexuality, disability), and what a person chooses to be/follow (religion, etc). I wouldn't mock or criticise someone for the way they were born. But their choice of religion or favourite sports team or politics is fair game for mockery & criticism.

    There already is that entitlement. That’s how Folau’s views that were in the headlines in the first place. He hasn’t been prosecuted nor is he threatened with imprisonment – he’s just experiencing the consequences of implying people’s existence caused a disasters, and other statements which could broadly fall under the banner of hate.

    There is no room for this kind of behaviour in society. If this is true they should throw the book at him.

    Some of these players seem to come from communities where the standards of behaviour and moral attitudes seem to date back to what would have been the norm over here in say pre 1950s

    I'm surprised those attitudes don't change once they start playing rugby at a higher level and mixing with other player's.

    When the Barba case came to light it was mentioned that there had been lots of incidences of domestic violence in rugby league around the same time so it still seems to be common in their communities.

    With Folau it would be interesting to see if his attitudes change if he spends a couple of seasons living in a multi cultural society like France
