Dog Rapist Joel Monaghan Quits NRL.
Disgraced Canberra Raiders player Joel Monaghan has quit the NRL club after a photo of him in a lewd pose with a dog was released on the internet last week.
The Raiders board, which was due to meet today to decide the 28-year-old’s fate, has been cancelled, with Monaghan handing in his resignation.
He will front a press conference at 3pm AEDT.
It is understood Monaghan, who still had two years left on his Raiders contract, has phoned the club’s sponsors to apologise for his behaviour.
Monaghan still faces the prospect of being deregistered by the NRL.
