Blair punished after altercation

Melbourne centre Maurice Blair has apologised after being arrested for an alleged assault.

He has also been fined an undisclosed amount and stood down from playing duties for a fortnight after an altercation with a woman in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The incident happened just hours after the Storm’s 30-6 victory over Gold Coast.

“I would like to apologise to my family, friends, fans and all the stakeholders of Melbourne Storm for my involvement in the incident,” Blair said in a statement.

“Everyone at Melbourne Storm is well educated and fully aware of our requirements when it comes to respectful relationships and the decisions we make.

“If I had my time again I would have made a better choice to ignore the situation.

“I have been fully cooperative with everyone involved and I have accepted the outcomes.

“My focus will be on working hard to get back into the team.”
