England star set to avoid punishment after reported incident with Leeds Rhinos player

There will be no punishment for Victor Radley after a reported incident between him and Leeds Rhinos star James Bentley as the Rugby League World Cup drew to a close.

It was yesterday revealed by the Daily Mail that the NRL Integrity Unit was set to drop the investigation into what happened and now the Daily Telegraph have confirmed that there will be no punishment for Radley from the NRL.

This bodes well for Bentley too who is reportedly keen on making the move to the NRL in 2024.

The Former St Helens star Bentley missed out on England selection despite a superb end to last season as he scored a brace to guide the Rhinos to an unlikely Grand Final.

He went on to represent Ireland once again and when they were knocked out at the group stage of the tournament, he went to Ibiza on holiday.

Days after returning to England, reports of this incident began to circulate.

It involved England star Victor Radley. The NRL player with the Sydney Roosters was one of England’s best players in the tournament and was nominated for the prestigious Golden Boot award.

However, he was a controversial pick in the eyes of some with former Leeds player Gary Schofield slamming the decision to pick him as he was not born in England.

Radley and Bentley were both being talked about for very different reasons however after England’s exit from the tournament.

This was because they were said to be involved in a fight.
