Statement – Paul Vaughan

The Rugby League Players’ Association (RLPA) has released the following statement regarding Paul Vaughan.

“The RLPA has been advised that St George Illawarra has issued immediate contract termination papers to Paul Vaughan today.

“The RLPA has been in contact with Paul and St George Illawarra officials following this decision.

“With any player integrity matter, but particularly one with such serious consequences for the player, it is fundamental to ensure that the appropriate steps have been taken and due process has been afforded.

“The RLPA will work through this matter with Paul and his management to ensure he is well-informed of his options moving forward.

“The RLPA will also ensure Paul is aware of wellbeing support available to him and his family.

“On a separate note, the RLPA will advocate for the introduction of a clear and consistent sanctioning framework relating to NRL biosecurity breaches to assist with future player and club compliance.”
