Brisbane pub The Caxton Hotel is under police investigation for license breaches after it allegedly allowed Broncos legend Allan Langer to sneak in the back door for his birthday celebrations.
The party was hosted at the Brisbane pub, which is close to Suncorp Stadium, after the Broncos’ loss to the Sharks two weeks ago.
Langer (above) and fellow staff members Ryan Whitley and Blake Duncan were later quarantined for 14 days and fined $5000 for breaking the NRL’s coronavirus protocols.
All three were subsequently barred from travelling to the Broncos’ away game against South Sydney last weekend.
“Queensland Police are investigating whether the Caxton Hotel snuck Aflie Langer and two others in the back door for Alfie’s birthday function,” Nine News reported.
“They’re also looking at whether or not the ID scanners and CCTV cameras were switched off as part of that visit to the Caxton – that would be a breach of the hotel’s license.
“So far, the Caxton are not commenting but police are definitely looking into this.”
The Courier Mail is reporting that Langer was allegedly not signed in to the hotel’s register in an attempt to fly under the NRL’s radar.
The allegations come after Queensland’s Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young said breaches of the code’s strict biosecurity rules were putting the 2020 NRL season “at risk”.
