Promising Canterbury Bulldogs forward Herman Ese’ese made his NRL debut just last week. It was meant to be a time of joy and jubilation.
Fast forward to this week and instead, he finds himself in trouble, being stood down by the club after being charged with a mid-range drink driving offence.
It is a blow for both Ese’ese and the Dogs club, especially with a game just around the corner in Rd 8.
The Bulldogs released the following statement on the matter:
Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs rookie Herman Eseâ€™ese has been stood down until further notice by the club after being charged with mid-range drink driving today.
Eseâ€™ese has today appeared in court and been fined $1000 and also suspended from driving for nine months.
The Bulldogs are working with the NRL Integrity Unit in regards to the matter.
The club will offer further comment once all investigations are complete.
