The incident between players and co슬롯 사이트ach Johnathan Thurston took place during the Roosters’ first game against the Bulldogs in Canberra, at the MCG.
It all went terribly wrong during the first quarter and led to Kelly falling into the turf of the Giants’ end zone.
The incident came at a difficult time for the Roosters when they are battling to win three of four games as they aim to complete a perfect season.
Kelly was charged by the NRL Integrity Unit after allegedly biting and hurling offensive verbal abuse to the coach in an early part of the second quarter.
The charge was eventually dropped.

According to NRL.com.au, Thurston was also charged with a further offence of attacking the club doctor.

“I think for us, a
