Brisbane Broncos young gun David Fifita is locked in a Bali jail after reportedly being arrested following a brawl outside a Bali nightclub.

Fifita is holidaying in his off-season and it appears he has found trouble at the same nightclub as Melbourne’s Nelson Asofa-Solomona last month.

Channel 7 is reporting that a statement by Bali police confirms that a foreigner is being detained and has yet to be questioned about the incident.

“Based on the report, police went to the crime scene, asking witnesses and the victim. A bule (foreigner) that was allegedly the perpetrator was arrested,” said Kuta police chief Puta Ika Prabawa.

“The perpetrator was taken to Kuta police station for further investigation.

“The alleged perpetrator could not be interrogated yet as he is still under the influence of alcohol.”

The Broncos are aware of the situation and have an official on their way to Bali.

Read the statement from the club below:

“The Brisbane Broncos have today been made aware that David Fifita has been detained by authorities in Bali after an alleged incident involving a security guard,” said the Broncos statement.

“The club is working with representatives in Bali to provide David all the support he needs, and a Broncos official is travelling to Indonesia today.”


  1. These footy players aren’t exactly rocket surgeons are they.
    There seems to be a pattern developing.
    One day they will figure out that they are a target. Scuum bags are going bait them.

  2. No player is interested in going to Souths except a handful of Nobodies & Dudz, like ……..

    Goodwin Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Mundine Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!

    Johns Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    I better stop listing any more su h as tje ones above and some reserve grader Queenslander who I can’t even name because he is such a dud, otherwise I will laugh so hard I will fall off my stool.

  3. Dear Mr/Mrs Shadow
    Do you ever get tired of posting the same biased comments on the articles which are posted on this site?
    Do you realise that many of you comments are irrelevant to the articles which are posted?
    Congratulations on learning the art of copying & pasting text. You can now proceed to the next step.
    I can’t help wondering…..are you taking the pi$s or are you a hopelessly deluded and obsessed Soufths supporter who goes to bed each night and dreams about everything that’s red & green?
    Nobody can argue that Soufths have won the most Premierships, but from 2002 to 2019 (inclusive) the boys from Bondi have won FOUR Premierships!!
    That, my ferverous little kumquat, is what is known as a very successful modern day NRL Club!!

  4. Sorry shadow but once Sam’s money for a pre existing injury gets added to your cap South’s wouldn’t even be able to afford to take Fafita out to lunch let alone sign him.

  5. The easiest thing to do in the future, is to take Bali off of the travel list. Especially for anyone who has a high profile.

  6. We all understand how it works Shadow, and I would say until the full time siren sounds and the Roosters have won their 22nd Premiership, you will keep reminding us of the glorious tradition of South Sydney. Let’s face it – their record may never be equalled or surpassed, and while you still have breath in your body you will no doubt remind us that they are, in fact, the most successful club in ARL/NRL history.
    That, my diligent little little pigeon, is something nobody can deny!!

  7. EastOfDivide, every fair dinkum Aussie should have had Bali off the holiday destination map, the second those mongrels bomb and killed all those people including Over 80 Australians and send their backward country broke. They rely on Australia giving them their tourist dollars and our Government giving them millions for nothing evert year.

    We all should do what Souths fans do to their hopeless footy club that keeps buying dud players. Just stop going.

  8. Thats the Australian Government for you Ben. They are more interested in giving millions of our hard earnt tax dollars to riff raff ungrateful foreign qverseas aid, instead of helping their own struggling & destitute fellow Aussies.

  9. Maybe take Bali of the travel list for drunken bogans who dont know how to behave themselves.
    Did you see the photo of Fifita shaking hands with the security guard? It looked like an elephant and a mouse.
    If he said sorry right after it happened slung the guy 50 the cops would not have come he would not have been locked up for the weekend it would not have made the papers and the Broncos would have saved the money for sending someone over to sort it out.
