TRANSCRIPT

The Wallabies star is fighting to keep his four-million-dollar contract.

The hearing is in its third day though and apparently not making much headway.

In Rugby League James Maloney’s State of Origin hopes are up in the air over a tackle charge.

While emerging Maroons player Corey Norman is recovering from a fractured cheek bone.

Meanwhile in AFL, Melbourne’s Steven May has apologised after breaking the clubs ‘no drinking in rehab’ rule.

Steven May, Melbourne Defender: “I’ve spoken to my teammates and coaches and they’re aware of the situation and our club’s aware of everything that’s happened.”

He was facing a likely club sanction after drinking at a Richmond pub.

Josh Mahoney, Melbourne Football Manager: “It’s about trying to help him through the issues he’s getting through and most important thing is getting him back out and playing.”

Steven May has been sidelined with a groin injury.
