Ben Barba deregistered by NRL followed alleged assault | Rugby League News |

Ben Barba was sacked by the Cowboys last week

Reigning Man of Steel Ben Barba has been deregistered by the National Rugby League after the game’s integrity unit viewed CCTV footage of an alleged assault on his partner.

The 29-year-old former St Helens full-back, who was the leading try-scorer in Super League in 2018, was sacked by North Queensland Cowboys without playing a game following the alleged incident outside a Townsville casino.

NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg said the integrity unit probe found “there was a physical altercation between the player and his partner”.
