Curtis Scott’s time with the Raiders has been cut short after the clubs Board of Directors decided to terminate his contract on Monday over an assault charge from May.

The decision was made after the Board analysed material and statements made at a show cause hearing with Scott on 17 August.

The 23 year old was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm after an alleged incident at Kokomo’s on May 30.

CCTV footage allegedly shows Scott punching another man in the early hours of the morning.

The Board deciding his behaviour was unacceptable.

“Curtis Scott’s prior behaviour and recent assault charge has brought the Club into disrepute, and we (they) could not ignore this and the responsibilities that his NRL playing Contract entails.”

The centre was handed an NRL breach notice for the incident which suspended him for three games and fined him $15,000.

Scott intends to fight the charge when his case is heard on 30 August.

While his termination is effective immediately, his ongoing rehabilitation will still be supported by the club.

He had more than two seasons left of his four year contract and played 23 games over his 18 month Raiders career.
