Just days before they are due to fly to Las Vegas for the historic NRL season opener two senior Brisbane Broncos have been filmed fighting putting a cloud over their capacity to make the trip.
The footage shows Broncos captain Adam Reynolds and fellow leader Pat Carrigan embroiled in what appears to be a drunken scuffle.
In the vision, released on social media, Carrigan and Reynolds are locked in a push-and-shove altercation with a female onlooker screaming: “Adam … Pat … stop!” as they grab at each other’s shirts.
It’s believed the clash came after Brisbane held their annual fan day, after which some Broncos players stayed out in Fortitude Valley.
The Broncos are yet to comment on the incident which is sure to come under scrutiny from the NRL integrity unit.
After an incident free summer among NRL players, the footage comes to light 10 days before the Broncos players were due to leave Australia for Las Vegas.
Several players, including superstar Broncos fullback Reece Walsh, had to attend the US embassy to ensure they could get a visa given previous incidents involving the courts.
Walsh and teammates Jordan Riki also appear to be in the footage.
