NRLW star Nita Maynard charged over alleged pub assault

NRLW star Nita Maynard has been charged over an alleged assault following an incident at a popular Cronulla bar.

Police were called to Northies on Friday night when the rugby league player allegedly became aggressive towards staff after being asked to leave.

The Daily Telegraph reports Maynard allegedly assaulted two security guards.

“About 9pm yesterday (Friday 2 April 2021), officers attached to Sutherland Shire Police Area Command were called to a licensed premise on Elouera Road, Cronulla, following reports of an alleged assault,” a statement from NSW Police said.

“The woman was arrested and taken to Sutherland Police Station, where she was charged with two counts of common assault and excluded person fail to leave premises when required.

“She was granted conditional bail to appear at Sutherland Local Court on Thursday, May 13.”

In a statement provided to news.com.au, a spokeswoman for the NSWRL said: “Nita Maynard is contracted to North Sydney. North Sydney are dealing with it at the moment and keeping us in the loop with regards to their actions.

“We will review the matter further once North Sydney have determined a course of action.

“We are confident they have the matter in hand.”

Maynard is not employed by NSWRL.

Bears chairman Daniel Dickson told the Sydney Morning Herald the 28-year-old is “shattered”.

“She is obviously disappointed with what has gone on,” he said. “We will make comment when the time is right.”

Maynard played State of Origin for NSW in 2018 and is also a New Zealand international.

She is no longer able to represent the Blues after eligibility rules changed in 2019.
