A case has been registered against former Toulon player Ben Barba following an incident at a Townsville casino on the Australian Day weekend which has led to ending his National Rugby League career. Barba featured in the Super League the previous year with St Helens but eventually he was ousted by the North Queensland. He could not play a single match for the club as he sacked immediately last month after he was accused of being violent against his partner Ainslie Currie before being deregistered by the National Rugby League. He has been earlier charged with two counts of public nuisance and it will soon appear in Townsville Magistrates Court on March 22. Queensland police said on Tuesday that his ban on entering Townsville's entertainment has been extended by three months. The 29-year old was charged a day after he confessed in an interview that he was ready to hand himself to the police over the allegations. Reports suggest that he would not be facing domestic violence-related charges because his partner hasn't complained against it yet. The integrity unit of the National Rugby League viewed and analyzed the footage which gave an evidence of the physical altercation allegedly between Barba and Ms Currie before league boss Todd Greenberg banned him. In 2016, he won a premiership with Cronulla but his career took a plunge when he tested positive for cocaine for the second time. After his collaboration with French Rugby Union and the English Super League, he was roped in by Cowboys under NRL before he got sacked on February 1.
