Three alleged border crossers will attend the NRL Grand Final.
Three males were penalised for allegedly crossing the border illegally to watch the NRL Grand Final in Queensland from New South Wales.
In order to show their support for teammate Nathan Cleary, Damon Finn, Connor Marsh, and Reece Laria entered the Sunshine State with an invalid border permit, authorities say.
According to claims in the media, Mr Marsh, Mr Cleary, and Mr Laria all share a penthouse in Penrith.
Yvette D'Ath, the state's health minister, claimed today that the men may have been using a 'F' permit.
It's possible that they were traveling on a F pass, which she believes was invalid.
The community is put at risk when people cross borders illegally.
It makes no difference why you're here."
The three are accused by Queensland Police of using the pass to enter the state boundary on Saturday and then watch the game.
They were arrested after a since-deleted photo of them partying on the Gold Coast was posted on social media.
In a motel yesterday, they were arrested, fined more than $4000 apiece, and ordered back in Sydney.
Nathan Cleary will be questioned by the NRL's integrity unit early next week to find out if he knew of his friend's violation.
Officials aren't ruling out imposing punishment on the Penrith co-captain if he's discovered to be involved. NSW Police have subsequently confirmed that they're looking into whether any other teammates went to Queensland illegally.
