Parramatta Eels backrower Shaun Lane is expected to be hit with a fine for bringing the game into disrepute following an NRL investigation into images that surfaced on Monday night.

The NRL launched an investigation earlier in the week after being made aware of an image of Lane holding a plastic bag with a white substance during what is believed to be the Sea Eagles’ Mad Monday celebrations last year.

However understands Lane denied being in possession or consuming an illegal substance.

It’s believed Lane has a clean record throughout his career despite numerous NRL-sanctioned random recreational drug testing.

Lane, who sent the image in a private message, didn’t give consent for the photo to be disseminated - which could open the door for potential legal options.

The Eels backrower has been named in Brad Arthur’s team to play against the Titans this weekend and is likely to play if the NRL slaps him with a warning and a fine for bringing the game into disrepute.

    • Lucky their not Stewarts

  • Thanks parralurker your the only 1 with the correct information on here. Now let’s win against the Titian’s 

  • Whoever leaked this story was concerned about Parra possibly becoming a top 4 side. We just cannot have that!! 

  • Whoever it was trying to derail the Eels season. You dirty peanut you have achieved nothing.

    • it was reported last night the nrl had a meeting with lane and the club, and the guy who sent the pic..

      guess  that will remain the public.


  • This will blow over !!!

    • Little doubt of that Brett, thing is that Lane is copping a big fine, yet those who are in the main responsible for the Mad Monday rot are complicant in the whole thing, as there are likely others who were part of the fun as well.

      What happened to the dogs with their nude MM last year, the Sharks a few years back to name two only, did we hear if the dogs coach who was at their showing get fined or a new contract for publicity?

      If practicable if these events are to continue, and as I read where they were brought in as an end of year get together to celebrate their season and for many to say their farewells to team mates as they either are retiring or signed elsewhere, surely it would be better in a less open area like pubs and the like and have it at the local leagues club.

      • Col I could be wrong but I think that was Brett being funny.

        • Adam, well I just said ha ha!

    • Thanks Brett. For your input.
