‘I failed’: Bulldog Adam Elliott’s mentor and major sponsor reacts to latest indiscretion

Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs major sponsor Arthur Laundy has expressed his concerns for Adam Elliott’s future, in the wake of the star’s indiscretion in a Gold Coast restaurant.

Mr Laundy told Jim Wilson for the board to fire Elliott now would amount to kicking the player while he’s down.

“I’ve been mentoring the guy, and you would say in the situation of last weekend I failed.

“On Monday evening Jim, he phoned me … the first words he said to me is ‘Arthur, I have let you down’.

“I said ‘you haven’t let me down; you’ve let yourself down, you’ve let the club down, you’ve let your mates down’.”

Mr Laundy insisted the playing group “absolutely” do not want their teammate sacked.

The NRL has fined Elliott $10,000 and issued NRLW player Millie Boyle with a warning over the pair’s bathroom tryst, which allegedly breached biosecurity protocols and resulted in them being removed from the restaurant, “bringing the game into disrepute”.

Chief rugby league reporter Danny Weidler told Jim Elliott’s history of breaches contributed towards the fine.

“If he’s not on the thinnest of ice, he’s already fallen through it.”
