Jail Time for Reardon and Pryce?

In a move that may please those who wish to prove that Super League can hold its own with the NRL in some areas, Leon Pryce and Stuart Reardon have pleaded guilty to assaulting Reardon’s estranged wife and her new partner. Of course, Pryce nearly didn’t go to the World Cup because of this and their guilty plea seems like it was the only realistic option, especially if the two of them hope for it to not derail their playing careers.

Given the seriousness of these allegations, I would imagine that jail time is quite likely and also probably deserved. I understand that there are emotional issues involved in these family matters but I don’t think that justifies the use of violence. Having already ranted about players drinking I think it’s worth highlighting that both of the two of them were on the lash when they decided to visit Reardon’s wife. Once again, I would like it if people would just use their common sense in situations like this. I would imagine that pleading guilty is a ploy to get a reduced sentence, but it wouldn’t surprise me if the two of them were about to become unavailable for portions of this season at least.
