The Club has today been informed that the NRL Anti-Doping Tribunal has confirmed a four-year ban for Jarrod Mullen due to Anti-Doping Rule violations.

“As we have said all along, this has been a disappointing matter for all parties,” CEO Matt Gidley.

“We wish to reiterate this matter took place independently of the Club.

“It is important to acknowledge Jarrod made a significant contribution to the Club over a long period of time and that adds to the disappointment in how he now departs the Club.

“We wish him and his family all the best for the future.”
