Gold Coast Titans issue statement regarding drug allegations

Gold Coast Titans CEO, Graham Annesley, has issued a statement regarding players Jamie Dowling and Beau Falloon.

Both players have been issue with notices to appear in court in relation to drug offences, following reports in the Australian media about cocaine dealing.

The two players are involved in a situation, which allegedly centres on cross-code star Karmichael Hunt, which involves players allegedly contacting representatives of drug dealers to arrange for the supply of cocaine.

“As a result, Jamie Dowling and Beau Falloon have been stood down from all playing and training responsibilities pending their appearance in court on March 5,” Mr Annesley said.

“In addition, the board and management of the club acknowledges that under these circumstances it is not appropriate for the team’s training facilities to be based in an education facility among impressionable young people. 

“As such we will make immediate plans to relocate to an alternate venue. 

“We unreservedly apologise to the school, our members, sponsors, corporate partners, and other stakeholders who have been let down or impacted by these unexpected and unacceptable developments.”

The club also confirmed that it has been in constant contact with the NRL Integrity Unit since the reports about the players surfaced.
