THREE rugby league players, one of them an established international, have been jailed for their part in a fight outside a Leeds night club.
LEEDS Rhinos have signed Papua New Guinean winger Marcus Bai on a two-year contract, with the Melbourne Storm favourite moving to Headingley at the end of 2003.
The long-serving winger is Melbourne's leading try scorer, having crossed the whitewash six times this season and 65 times since their inception in 1998.
WIGAN Warriors have parted company with coach Stuart Raper with immediate effect, with Mike Gregory taking over the reigns at The JJB Stadium until the end of the season.
Raper had announced last week that he will leave The JJB Stadium at the end of the season to return to Australia with his family.
