SENDING A MESSAGE: In Sydney, Jackson & Barrett reported Smith "played a pivotal role" in North Queensland prop James Tamou being fined A$20,000 ($19,000) on top of his suspension from the second State of Origin. The NRL's newly formed integrity unit "had told the relevant parties Tamou would be handed a two-match ban," which also effectively meant a A$30,000 fine when the Origin bonus payment was taken into account. But later on Wednesday, with significant input from Smith, the A$20,000 fine was added. Smith said, "Our integrity unit has reviewed the situation, we have consulted with the Cowboys and we have sent a clear message of what is expected of our players" (SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, 6/13).
