I would like to extend my deepest regrets and sincerest apologies for bringing the game into disrepute.
My behaviour was inappropriate and caused damage to the reputation of the NRL and the Melbourne Storm.
I would like to apologise to members, sponsors, fans, former players and the entire Storm family for tarnishing the finish to an otherwise amazing season.
My actions should not detract from the amazing work done by the club in continuing to function and represent Victoria whilst in such trying circumstances.
This has been an incredibly tough time for me personally and I would not wish it upon anyone. I am eager to share my experience with younger players and help ensure they do not put themselves in similar positions.
Once again, I apologise for the damage caused by my actions and hope to make up for it with my actions in the future.
