Thompson Says Sorry

Lance Thompson publicly apologised to his St George Illawarra team-mates for turning up to Monday morning's training session drunk.

Thompson, who had been celebrating his 26th birthday, has been fined an undisclosed amount and demoted from the National Rugby League side to the Premier League over the incident.

"I've let not only the young blokes in the club but all the players down who have stood by me over the years and I'm looking forward to repaying them," Thompson said.

Thompson will now play in Premier League against the Roosters in Rockhampton this weekend.
