SAD NEWS: Cronulla Sharks captain is in trouble

Cronulla Sharks suspended Braydon Trindall after he failed roadside drug and alcohol tests.
In short, Cronulla Sharks playmaker Braydon Trindall has been suspended after allegedly failing roadside drug and alcohol tests.
The club believes that by not playing, Trindall will be able to “attend to his welfare and health issues.”
What happens next? Cronulla’s next game is against Canberra on Sunday, and Daniel Atkinson is expected to replace Trindall.
Cronulla has removed five-eighth Braydon Trindall from the NRL after he allegedly failed roadside drug and alcohol tests.

The Sharks announced in a statement that Trindall had been charged with failing the Monday morning tests, less than 24 hours after their round-seven win over North Queensland.

Cronulla said Trindall, who is expected to start next month, immediately notified the club.

He is awaiting a second sample for his drug test.

“The club has since followed the appropriate protocols within the player’s contract and (collective bargaining agreement) and is still working with the NRL integrity unit,” the Sharks said in a statement.

“The club, player, and his management all agree that it is in Braydon’s best interests to refrain from playing or training in the short term, allowing him to focus on his welfare and health.”

Cronulla will face Canberra on Sunday, with Daniel Atkinson likely to replace Trindall.
