TUESDAY FEBRUARY 5 2019 WEATHER 31 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Barbas career over as English back NRL ban BEN Barbas rugby league career is almost certainly over after the English RFL confirmed it would respect any ban issued against him by the NRL. Barba was sacked by North Queensland Cowboys last week after club officials viewed CCTV footage of an incident at a Townsville casino over the Australia Day weekend. He is alleged to have assaulted his partner and mother of his four children, Ainslie Currie, and is being investigated by police. NRL chief Todd Greenberg said on Sunday he would refuse to register any future contract if Barba was found guilty. If youre violent against a woman you can expect to be removed from the game. It starts now, Greenberg said. I havent seen the footage as yet, but if it shows violence towards a woman then really theres no debate. Ben Barba will be out of the NRL immediately and I cant see him ever returning. The 29-year-old was already on his last chance after being forced out of the NRL in 2016 after recording his second illicit drugs strike following Cronullas grand final win. He subsequently moved to French rugby before embarking on a successful stint with St Helens, where he rejuvenated his career in a magnificent 2018 season that culminated in him being crowned Super Leagues Man of Steel. That form didnt go unnoticed in the NRL and St Helens reluctantly granted his wish to be released from the final year of his contract so he could take up the lifeline offered to him by the Cowboys. However, the RFL has confirmed it would also enforce any punishment meted out by the NRL. We will always uphold any ban imposed by the NRL under a reciprocal agreement between RFL and the NRL, a statement read. Independent to that arrangement, the RFL Board has the right to refuse registration to any player and would also consult with the Super League in that process. We are bound to follow that process.NRL CEO Todd Greenberg addressing the media over Ben Barbas sacking Picture: ADAM YIP If (footage) shows violence towards a woman then really theres no debate T O D D G R E E N B E R G IAN McCULLOUGH and STEVE ZEMEK Tanami Tiwi Daly Arnhem Carpentaria Gregory Barkly Simpson Lasseter Sunrise Sunset Moonrise Moonset 6:42 am 7:19 pm 6:47 am 7:41 pm Feb 20 Feb 26 Feb 5 Feb 13 Tue Feb 5 Wed Feb 6 Thu Feb 7 Fri Feb 8 Sat Feb 9 Sun Feb 10 Mon Feb 11 Tue Feb 12 1:06am 2.9m 6:18am 6.2m 12:58pm 1.4m 7:30pm 7.3m 1:30am 2.6m 6:52am 6.5m 1:25pm 1.3m 7:56pm 7.4m 1:56am 2.5m 7:25am 6.6m 1:52pm 1.4m 8:20pm 7.4m 2:23am 2.3m 7:58am 6.7m 2:17pm 1.5m 8:43pm 7.3m 2:53am 2.2m 8:32am 6.6m 2:41pm 1.7m 9:05pm 7.2m 3:26am 2.2m 9:06am 6.5m 3:05pm 2.1m 9:26pm 6.9m 4:01am 2.3m 9:44am 6.3m 3:29pm 2.5m 9:50pm 6.6m 4:39am 2.4m 10:28am 6.0m 4:01pm 3.0m 10:16pm 6.3m Darwin 23 6.2 Tindal 23 31 56 Jabiru 26 29 2 Nhulunbuy 24 32 23 Borroloola 25 33 3 Lajamanu 25 40 2 Tennant Creek 24 35 0.2 Alice Springs 22 38 Yulara 27 42 Location Min Max *Rain Location Min Max *Rain * rainfall 24 hours to 9am yesterday 1000 1024 1008 1008 1008 1016 1016 1016 1002 1004 998 1018 1030 WARNINGS Warnings were current at 5pm yesterday.
