The lawyer of Gold Coast Titans star Beau Falloon says there is “no case” against his client despite the hooker being a the centre of the cocaine scandal engulfing rugby league.
Chris Nyst has written to the Department of Prosecutions and Titans chief executive Graham Annesley, saying the case was “non-existent”.
Nyst has called for the case to be thrown out before it reached court after stating the charge of supplying cocaine came down to a series of vague text messages.
“On the basis of what they have shown us there is no case against our client,” he told The Courier Mail.
“It’s simply non-existent.”
According to the report, the Queensland Crime and Corruption Commission will allege Falloon sent accused cartel boss John Touma a text after the final game of the 2014, saying “the season starts now.”
Nyst says there was no genuine proof against Falloon.
“It is patently obvious to me that the (case) summary disclosed absolutely nothing to prove Mr Falloon supplied or received anything at all,” he said.
“In my view any competent lawyer would conclude from the disclosed material there is no case against Mr Falloon on any of the charges against him.”
Falloon along with teammtates Greg Bird, Dave Taylor, Jamie Dowling and Kalifa Fafai Loa have been stood down by the Titans and will face court this week.
