It is well documented that former Sydney Roosters utility Jayden Nikorima, 22, is facing legal troubles. Having been charged with making a false declaration to police after his part in a bungled attempt to avoid punishment over a positive NRL sanctioned drug test in September. Nikorima tested positive to ecstasy.
Nikorima offered to pay Wyong Roos team mate Brad Keighran $7000 to lie and say he had spiked his drink. Keighran was found guilty in court for his part in the debacle and sentenced to an intensive community-based sentence.
This is Nikorima’s second positive drugs test, triggering a 12 month ban and allowing the Roosters to terminate his contract.
He was subsequently offered a potentially career saving contract by Intrust Super Cup Champions the Redcliffe Dolphins.
However, the Dolphins are considering their response to the most resent revelations, with a decision on his future expected by the end of the week.
NothingButLeague can confirm, as per a source close to Nikorima, that the talented but wayward playmaker is not confident of his future on the peninsula. While he attended training on Tuesday night, he does not expect to be part of the club beyond the end of the week.
