Barba.

Just when you think we’re getting through a preseason relatively unscathed.

Have no idea of the details at all but if he’s f****d up I’ll be livid.

I hope he hasn't dicked up.
But if he has that probably means there will be a spot for both TMM and Clifford.

Hopefully it's nothing, but he doesn't deserve another chance if he's stuffed this one up. We went out on a limb to sign him.

TMM had 3 mom games in a row at fullback, give it to him and bring in Clifford.

Also, sign Brandon Smith with the money saved if he's breached contract.

It’s not nothing. His contract is terminated.

Just read that, happy with the response from the club, wash our hands and pretend it never happened.

Yeah. Like I said on twitter, it’s hard to be surprised. But it’s disappointing.

Seriously low IQ mofo. Why is it always the most talented ones that are so braindead? Guess we go from fighting for top 4 this year to battling to make the top 8. Sigh.

Truly what a FUKIN retard. I have no idea of the circumstances, but for the club to respond so quickly and definitively shows he has learnt nothing. Good riddance

I'm guessing TMM or Hampton will cover the role for this season. Hopefully one of them cements the spot so this doesn't f*** our season too badly. Come home Val!

Club statement
Cowboys.com.au
Fri 1 Feb 2019, 07:16 PM

Today, North Queensland Cowboys terminated the playing contract of Ben Barba due to a significant breach of the terms of his contract.

Chairman Laurence Lancini stated: “When a player joins the North Queensland Cowboys he agrees to abide by the terms of the contract. After an internal investigation, it has been determined that this player has acted in contradiction to both the terms and the spirit of that agreement. Accordingly, the club has terminated his contract and has informed the NRL’s Integrity Unit.”
