The text messages exchanged hours before Blake Ferguson’s arrest revealed

The text messages exchanged between fallen rugby star Blake Ferguson and Daily Telegraph columnist Phil ‘Buzz’ Rothfield have been revealed.

The NRL – Ferguson’s former governing body – have been unable to release the winger from jail after he was reportedly found in possession of cocaine after his arrest in late December.

It was also alleged that Ferguson had punched a fellow restaurant-goer before he was arrested just a few days before the Rugby League One was set to begin its 2022 season, with the former Parramatta Eels star set to take to the field for the NEC Green Rockets Tokatsu.

Ferguson’s arrest, however, led to the termination of his contract before he had even played the 15-a-side code.

But, in the messages between him and Rothfield, it appeared as though Ferguson was in an upbeat mood, ready to try and play his hand in union.

I’m going good bra,” Ferguson messaged Rothfield, “just enjoying the Japanese lifestyle.

“I’m sure I’m going to kill it. I scored two tries in our trial game and made a couple of line breaks.

“Make sure you watch my games on Stan.”

It remains to be seen where the 31-year-old’s future lies, but Rothfield also asked NRL boss Andrew Abdo what would happen if Ferguson attempted to rejoin the rugby league competition.

“If Blake was to return to Australia an interested club would be required to make an application for him to be registered as an NRL player,” Abdo said.

“Like any other player, we would consider all the available evidence and then make a determination about his suitability for registration in a fair and considered manner.”
