What we know so far about Jamil Hopoate
Jamil Hopoate – who played in 12 NRL games for the Broncos this season – was in 2014 sentenced to a year behind bars for a drunken, unprovoked attack on a man outside a Sydney pub.
He was sacked by the Manly Sea Eagles after his conviction and only made his league debut earlier this year. The footy player is out of contract with the Broncos, with the fresh charges once again putting his sporting career in jeopardy.
The 26-year-old admitted earlier this year he didn’t value his rugby league career.
‘I took everything for granted actually,’ he told The Sydney Morning Herald.
His hulking footballer father meanwhile infamously stuck his finger into the bottom of three of his opponents during a game in 2001. For that incident, he was suspended for 12 games, and throughout his career, he was rubbed out for 47 games.
