St George Illawarra Dragons Comment

The St George Illawarra Dragons were today advised that Wes Naiqama appeared in Waverley Local Court on a driving while disqualified charge and was sentenced to periodic detention.

The Club was also advised that an appeal to the Sydney District Court against the severity of the sentence has been filed and is due to be heard on May 22, 2007.

At this stage, Wes will continue to train and play with the Dragons.

Given that this is still a judicial matter before the Courts it is not appropriate for the Club to make any further comment.
