Driving very fast without a licence? Allegedly the Raiders’ Josh Dugan

By johnboy - 8 February 2012 36

The Herald Sun brings news that Canberra’s young star Josh Dugan will face the magistrate for speeding despite already having a suspended licence:

Dugan will appear in ACT Magistrates Court next week to face charges of high-range speeding and driving while suspended.

The Daily Telegraph understands police will allege he was travelling at more than 105km/h in a 60km/h zone.

The NRL All Stars fullback pleaded not guilty to both charges from August last year that the Canberra Raiders chose to keep under wraps – not even informing the NRL as most clubs do out of courtesy when police charges are laid against their players.

They also organised his legal representation for the hearing on Thursday next week.

Josh’s management say he wasn’t aware of the suspension at the time in question.

What’s Your opinion?

I’m not clear on how someone could be unaware their license had been suspended. Was it some kind of double-secret-suspension?

Raiders management ‘forgot’ to tell him?

I would say RL continues to implode but it seems it seems doesnt. No matter how often this stuff comes up no real action is taken to deal with the root cause. Every now and then a player is sacrificed and forced to scuttle of to the UK and live in abject splendour but it otherwise the beat goes on.

Well, yes. They are.

I can’t remember the last time a Brumbies player was disqualified for driving, had simulated sex with a dog, got drunk and pissed on other patrons at a bar, got caught drink driving, took a dump in a hotel etc etc etc…

If RL players are not as badly behaved, I guess they’re just much worse at not being caught?

“Josh’s management say he wasn’t aware of the suspension at the time in question.”

Was he aware that he was driving more than 45km/h over the speed limit?

Regardless, wouldn’t you say that this type of behaviour & attitude, is running rampant throughout the NRL?

Young males with overinflated sense of ego, living in a bubble surrounded by yes men and more money than they can poke a stick at.
