Queensland Maroons player Jai Arrow will leave camp today to return home after being issued with a breach notice for failing to comply with the game’s biosecurity protocols.
QRL managing director Robert Moore supported the swift action taken by the NRL, and also acknowledged the manner in which Maroons staff dealt with the situation once they became aware of the protocol breach.
Arrow has made it clear he was aware of the rules while in the bubble and was remorseful for his actions.
“I know I have let a lot of people down, including my teammates, coaching staff and fans right across the rugby league community,” Arrow said.
“For this I am truly sorry. I have fully cooperated with the NRL Integrity Unit, and I understand the scrutiny and criticism coming my way.”
