NRL badboy Curtis Scott set to be handed shock rugby league lifeline

Exiled NRL star Curtis Scott could be set for a shock move to park rugby league.

That’s according to the Daily Telegraph which has revealed that Scott has held talks with the Camden Rams – a side in Western Sydney – in an attempt to fashion a possible move back into the NRL.

The Rams’ hierarchy believed that Scott was determined to play for the club – if for very little money – in a bid to impress a possible NRL side.

“Verbally we’ve agreed with Curtis to play with us and we’d love to him have here,’’ Rams club president Greg Copeland said.

“But we’ve just got to tick a few boxes still and hopefully we can work towards signing off on his registration next week.’’

Asked what the Rams were willing to pay Scott, Copeland replied: “Hardly nothing, it’s not about that for Curtis.

“He just wants to play for a strong club that can help him with his football career.’’

Scott was hoping to rejuvenate himself and his career with the Parramatta Eels this season but the NRL refused to let him play.

Scott, who was getting ready to play golf with his new partner when he was arrested, was taken to Sutherland Police Station just days before pre-season at his new club the Parramatta Eels was set to continue following the Christmas break.

The charges against the 24-year-old include two counts of intentionally trying to choke a person with recklessness, two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, stalk/intimidate intend fear physical etc harm (domestic), and three counts of common assault (DV) against a former ‘childhood sweetheart’, according to 9 News.

On the field, Scott has had mixed results, but he was part of the Melbourne Grand Final-winning side back in 2017 as well as being part of the Storm side that lost in the year after to the Sydney Roosters.

Both police and the NRL had known for years about the allegations of domestic violence, but Scott’s former partner had not acted on them – until now.

Scott is already set to sue police for wrongful arrest following an incident back in 2020, whilst he was arrested for a nightclub brawl last year.
