NRL club’s chairman urged to walk away after support for former Wigan Warriors star during court case

Former Wigan Warriors star Brett Finch is awaiting to hear is fate after pleading guilty to one count of using a carriage service to make child abuse material available.

Finch has opened in court over how he ended up on this descent towards this saying he only used the website in questions, FastMeet, in a bid to acquire drugs due to continuing drug addiction which he had tried to battle multiple times in rehab only for the pandemic to make things tough on Finch once again.

Finch hasn’t been without support. His wife continues to support the former Wigan Warriors and State of Origin halfback whilst St George Illawarra Dragons Chairman Craig Young even acted as a character witness.

However, in his support of Finch, he has stirred up a controversy of his own.

This is because he used the club’s letter head when writing his statement somewhat implying that the club supported Finch as well.

Following this, the club released a statement in which Young apologised and said that his support wasn’t reflective of the club’s stance on the matter.

Since then there has been mounting pressure on him to step down from his position as the Chairman.

Now, according to the Daily Telegraph, there’s set to be an emergency meeting as this pressure comes to a head.

It’s hoped that Young will simply walk away.
