Broncos forward Fifita released from Bali jail

David Fifita has been released from a Bali jail just over two days after the Brisbane Broncos forward was allegedly involved in a nightclub brawl.

The 19-year-old second-rower was arrested after a reported altercation with a security guard on Friday.

The Queensland Maroons State of Origin prodigy is no longer in custody and will return to Australia on Tuesday.

A Broncos statement released on Monday said: "The Broncos and local legal representatives have worked with Indonesian authorities to ensure David's release.

"David was respectful of Indonesian law and cooperated fully with local law enforcement throughout his incarceration.

"The Broncos have been working closely with the NRL Integrity Unit, and David will outline his version of events to the Unit in coming days.

"He will arrive home in Brisbane tomorrow, accompanied by a Broncos official who travelled to Bali to provide support after David was taken into custody."
