The Canberra Raiders Board of Directors today decided to terminate the contract of Curtis Scott effective immediately.
The Board carefully considered the statements made at the 'show cause' hearing with Curtis Scott on August 17 and the material supplied afterward.
The Board decided that Curtis Scott's prior behaviour and recent assault charge has brought the Club into disrepute, and they could not ignore this and the responsibilities that his NRL playing Contract entails.
The Board said the Club would continue to support Curtis Scott’s ongoing rehabilitation and it will be in contact with NRL Welfare in this regard.
The club will be making no further comment on the issue.
