Hunt's wild night out
A SATURDAY night out on the town turned sour for Brisbane Broncos hookers Ben Hunt and Andrew McCullough, after the pair were charged by police for being a public nuisance and each fined $200.
Hunt, a former Dingo schoolboy and Central Queensland Comet’s player was refused entry to a Brisbane CBD hotel in the early hours of Saturday morning, after late night drinking with team-mate McCullough.
Both players have since been stood down from the top-grade with Griffin confident the mishap was a one-off occurrence for the drunken duo.
“I just want to stress the guys in question have been great young leaders within our club as they’ve come through the ranks,” Griffin said in southern media reports.
“We’re not questioning their long-term survival at the club. They are both good characters in their own right. They just made a wrong decision on this occasion.”
The swift punishment dealt to Hunt and McCullough was struck as a deliberate show of force by Griffin, that ill-discipline would in no way be tolerated at the Brisbane club.
