He is unlikely to be able to get permission to rejoin the NRL.

Tim Simona is a very talented centre. He would be a great asset for a Super League club, such as for example London Broncos.

Why is this one not on your list of players disgracing rugby league?

Because the crimes were committed two years ago. Timoteo Simona's sins are now old news. The more important point now, as the article points out, is that he is begging for forgiveness and the chance at redemption.

I do not see why not. The concept of redemption is traditionally part of western culture and being able to show true remorse and to earn the right to a second chance is a valuable aspect of our society. Unfortunately modern society seems to hold a contrary view that forgiveness is only for those in the in crowd so that even a single remark, from years before, will see you pilloried if you are not in the right clique whilst if you are one of the favoured few you can get away with murder and still be lauded for it.

Personally I find the aspect of his behaviour which was most obnoxious was the defrauding of charities rather than the betting because I dislike those who prey on the weakest. Having said that if we are willing to give other rule breakers the benefit of the doubt we can extend the same here. He has not murdered anyone and is not a threat to the well being of those around him. One interesting issue is that the ban is indefinite rather than life according to the text. This suggests that the governing body foresaw a route back into the game for the player.

Genuine rugby league fans, because the player in question is a real talent.

No it’s just a name you’ve pulled out of the air to start yet another meaningless thread. It could be anyone.

Can this be merged with "the all new dodgy Australian" thread, please?

And yet you link him with London, real talent would be higher up the tree wouldnt you think.

Just so you know, Paul Rowley is highly thought of here in Toronto.
