Holmes takes the lie detector

NRL: The North Queensland Cowboys were the next team to face Fletch and Hindy’s dreaded lie detector test, with Valentine Holmes clearly not well prepared.

Souths are hoping to know on Friday if Walker will miss any game time for karate kicking a man during the street fight in Casino.

The Rabbitohs will also learn if James Roberts can return to training or will have to isolate after leaving a rehabilitation facility on Thursday.

In a busy week the club will also learn if Wayne Bennett will be fined for not revealing any details about Walker’s Casino incident to the NRL and if Latrell Mitchell’s penalty for breaching social distancing laws will be changed.

Any potential suspension for Walker allow Dargan, who was an Eels junior before moving to the Broncos and then following Bennett to South Sydney to debut for the club in Round 3.

As for Roberts, he is keen to play against the Roosters, but could be forced to isolate for 14 days after spending time outside the Souths bubble.

He sought professional help for depression and anxiety because he had struggled without the routine of rugby league during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Abdo said if Roberts’ return was delayed, it would be “purely based on protecting the health of James, the Rabbitohs squad and the broader community”.
