The ambitious NRL star Tristan Sailor was reportedly arrested in connection with a woman’s complaint.
The young gun, the son of rugby league legend Wendell Sailor, has played five games for the Dragons since his first grade debut last year, but was cut by the club at the end of the season.
New South Wales police said in a statement that a detective had executed an investigation warrant at his home in Wollongong as part of an ongoing investigation. A 22-year-old man was arrested and taken to the Wollongong police station.
There is no charge.
Several media outlets reported that the man in question was a sailor living with his parents in Wollongong.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the NRL Integrity Unit has noticed the sailor’s arrest.
Sailors are struggling for a chance at Red V and are not included in the plans for their next coach, Anthony Griffin.
He made a halfback in his first first grade appearance in late 2019, but failed to get a regular place in 2017 under Paul McGregor or interim coach Dean Young. ..
Sailor’s father, Wendell, was a Broncos legend before hopping chords to represent Wallabies in the rugby union. He later returned to the league with the Dragons, where he ended his career.
Wendell was dissatisfied with his son being shunned by St. George at the end of the season.
“He was expected to get two games from the bench and play miracles successfully in a limited game time,” Wendell told Nine last month.
“Now they say he isn’t wanted — my wife and I are very disappointed that he didn’t have the opportunity to show what he got in the field.
“He’s doing everything right all year long. He couldn’t even come to my mother’s funeral because he was in the bubble, but he accepted it, and now they cut him I did. “
