WALSH MADE ‘A MISTAKE’

-

AN EMOTIONAL Reece Walsh has told Warriors officials he does not have a drug problem but the teenage sensation will begin immediate counsellin­g after being caught by police with a bag of cocaine during post-season celebratio­ns on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

Walsh fronted the media alongside Warriors chief executive Cameron George and his manager Nash Dawson on Sunday afternoon, only hours after he was arrested and found to be in possession of cocaine during a police search.

He has been charged with one count of possession of a prohibited substance and will appear in court next month.

“Last night I got myself into a bit of trouble,” Walsh said. “No-one else is involved in this. It is solely on me. I put my hand up - I should never have done it.

“It is a mistake I made.”
