“Whatever way the court decides, it’ll have massive ramifications,” Levy told Macquarie Sports Radio Breakfast.
“If the judge finds in favour of the NRL, the league is obviously well within their rights to stand a player down who has been charged by police.
“But on the other side of the ledger, if the judge finds in favour of Jack de Belin, this is going to open up a whole new can of worms for the NRL.
