NRL to interview Elliott over weekend incident with former Bulldog

Canterbury are planning to meet with forward Adam Elliott, who was at a home over the weekend where former Bulldog Michael Lichaa was charged with domestic violence offences.

The NRL Integrity Unit was informed late Sunday that Elliott was at a party at Connells Point when he allegedly became involved in a physical altercation with Lichaa.

Police will also allege Lichaa assaulted a young woman who was known to him.

Lichaa was arrested at his home and taken to hospital to be treated for arm injuries.

He was later charged by police with common assault (domestic violence), destroying or damaging property (domestic violence) and stalking/intimidation causing fear of physical harm (domestic violence).

The police have no interest in Elliott, but the Bulldogs and NRL have started their own inquiries as to what unfolded. There were reports he sustained injuries on the night.

Canterbury confirmed via a statement on Monday they were working with the NRL Integrity Unit.

“The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have overnight been made aware of an alleged incident involving Adam Elliott,” the statement read.

“The club has reported the matter to the NRL Integrity Unit and is currently working with them.

“The club is not in a position to comment further at this stage.”

Lichaa played 98 games for the Bulldogs before being cut loose at the end of 2019. He was granted bail and will appear at Sutherland Local Court on Wednesday.
