Brisbane Bronco linked to casino cheating scandal

Bronco Joe Ofahengaue has been linked to a casino cheating controversy.

His case will be mentioned in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Friday.

News Corp reports he faces a charge of cheating by fraudulent act, practice or scheme.


It is believed the charge stems from an incident at a blackjack table at a casino.

Broncos CEO Paul White confirmed Ofahengaue had alerted the club to the matter.

“The club is aware of the matter and has notified the NRL Integrity Unit about it,” White said.

“We will allow due course to run and then determine if any further action is to be taken.”
