Jayden Okunbor and Corey Harawira-Naera received a ban on playing
In Australia, the NRL football players are very popular because this is the sport of top interest in this country. There is even an unwritten rule in rugby circles that players think they can escape the mistake made, as long as they don’t break the law.
But recently, players Jayden Okunbor and Corey Harawira-Naera received a ban on playing after having a “happy” relationship with the girls in February. The girls went to the hotel after the NRL tournament went to a high school to launch an advertising campaign.
These practices were declared NRL officials “unforgivable”. NRL tournament director Todd Greenberg said “The behavior of these two players is unforgivable and a serious breach of the code of conduct. We decided that both of us will be terminated from the tournament. ”.
After the scandal, police entered the investigation but fortunately, the girls were all over the age of adolescence. However, the host club of the two players, Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, lost about $ 2 million in sponsorship deals.
After the above sanctions were imposed on March 24, Jayden Okunbor and Harawira-Naera are still feeling a bit lucky as the NRL tournament is still being postponed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, these two players, Jayden Okunbor and Harawira-Naera can still wait for the “leniency” from the tournament organizers in the next period.
Myron Rolle, a former American rugby star, turned to be a doctor between COVID-19.
Myron Rolle has been rated as one of the bright talents of American football. This player played for the University of Florida team and earned the title of “Youngest Player of the Season”. This achievement helped Myron Rolle was recruited by the Tennessee Titans Club in 2010 to play in the American Professional Football League (NFL). After two seasons, the player moved to Pittsburgh Steelers.
Just when the player’s career began to prosper and earned about $ 1.5 million in salary, Myron Rolle decided to give up to pursue his dream of becoming a doctor. He was awarded a scholarship by two prestigious universities, Harvard (USA) and Oxford (UK) to study for a master’s degree and is currently a surgeon at Massachusetts Hospital (USA).
Recently, Myron Rolle caused a “fever” when he revealed he was involved in the fight against COVID-19 and shared the difficulties of the US health sector in combating the epidemic. The former rugby star said the risk of a shortage of medical masks is gradually increasing when supplies are limited and exhausted. The emergency room at the hospital where Myron Rolle is working is also overburdened by patients with COVID-19 infection.
“Right now, there are a lot of people with respiratory failure or breathing problems and the number is skyrocketing. The beds are starting to get full and our guest rooms have been used as isolation rooms for patients with COVID-19 or suspected infection “.
As of 6:30 PM on April 2, the US is the country with the most cases of COVID-19 in the world with more than 200,000 cases and currently has at least 4,000 deaths.
