Brisbane Broncos captain Adam Reynolds has revealed the conversations he had to have with his family after footage surfaced of him being involved in a fight with teammate Pat Carrigan.
A video of the two Broncos stars battling aggressively against each other circulated on social media Monday, leaving the club to explain what happened three weeks after the season opener.
Speaking to 9News Queensland, Reynolds explained he had to have a difficult discussion with his children about the video.

“I have four children at home who unfortunately see Dad in a little fight, it’s embarrassing,” he said.
“…I sat them down, I explained the situation to them, I explained to them that it was going to be on the news.”
The NRL’s integrity unit is investigating the incident, but Broncos coach Kevin Walters confirmed the club would not suspend the duo.
Controversy comes for the Broncos as they prepare to face the Sydney Roosters at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on March 3.
Reynolds admits he accepted there was a chance he and Carrigan would be out for the blockbuster match.
“We are fully aware of what we did this weekend and we are fully aware of it,” he said.
“If that means we miss Vegas, then we miss Vegas. It’s in the hands of the Integrity Unit now and whatever decision they make, we will support them.”
