THREE of the four men accused of raping their ‘mate’ with a beer bottle while he was passed out have faced court, claiming it was just a ‘silly’ prank.
Four Brisbane university students are facing charges, after footage emerged on Facebook, allegedly showing the act being carried out on a 19-year-old on Australia Day this year.
It was revealed last week when the first of the four fronted court, two of the men are former Brisbane Lions AFL academy players.

Today, a solicitor for one of the men told magistrate Linda Bradford-Morgan it was ‘no rape’.
“It’s just a prank, no rape involved, no bottle went through this bloke’s anus, so no rape.”
The trio was granted bail to appear in court on November 30.
