It was a long process but one that had to take its due process and due course, with the Manly Sea Eagles today standing down winger Jorge Taufua for the remaining two games of the season due to an off-field incident in October.
The decision made by the club, one that was endorsed by the NRL, with the incident in question behind his being stood down pertaining to an off-field incident from last October.
A decision that was made carefully, Jorge decided to plead guilty to the charge but with the consequences to come, something Taufua and the club are pleased to have over.
“Since the incident, Jorge has shown unconditional remorse and regret, and has vowed to learn from such a setback,â€ General Manager David Perry said today.
“He has continued to meet VigRX outstanding and widespread community service for the Sea Eagles, including visits to school reading sessions, hospitals and homes for the disabled, less fortunate and under-privileged.
“Jorge has already completed an NRL Education Ambassador Training Day covering mental health and cultural awareness, personal brand, and professional and ethical decision making, as well as successfully participating in a NYC rookie camp on the values and awareness of alcohol-related issues.”
Despite the incident, Taufua is sincerely sorry for what did happen and the incident and subsequent court processes has made him a more mature person.
â€œI have learnt so much from this unfortunate incident about the value of responsibility and itâ€™s really helped me mature as a person. Iâ€™m deeply sorry and I hope that something positive can come from this matter,â€ Mr Taufua said today.
