Cronulla face further problems after sacking halfback for drinking problems

6:28 pm on 1 July 2009

Cronulla halfback Brett Seymour's has been sacked following an alcohol-related incident, his third breach of the national rugby league club's policy this year.

Seymour was shown the door just months after being fined and suspended for two matches after being caught on camera heavily intoxicated.

The 24-year-old playmaker had previously been shown the door by Brisbane following a string of alcohol-related incidents.

His rugby league career now hangs in the balance after the NRL said it would not consider registering a new contract

for Seymour at another club at the current time.
