Proctor voluntarily stood down from co captaincy duties after news broke, he was also banned from playing four games for the Titans.
He made his return for the Gold Coast in their loss to South Sydney last Friday but on Monday admitted he had plenty of making up to do with his teammates.

“I owe them a lot. I have to earn everyone’s respect back. I let a lot of people down, including my teammates, the club, my country, the NRL, and most of all, my family,” Proctor said.
“Once I start earning everyone’s respect back and get back to doing what I love, I’ll move on from this.”
“It’s been tough for everyone. I don’t want to drag them through that anymore. Just trying to put all that behind me and let my actions do the talking,” he said.
“And I’m a father as well. I need to be a better role model to my kids, and that’s why I’m working really hard to put all this behind me.”
Proctor also denied having a drinking problem.
“I just had some bad choices. I’ve got the welfare team here to help me out and deal with those situations a lot better. I think I’m coming out the other side,” he said.
