Tobin has been under investigation by Police for some time, due to his links with the supply of cocaine to players from the Gold Coast Titans. Three former Titans players, Joe Vickery, Dave Taylor and Jamie Dowling, were all found guilty of drug offences and have already been nominated for The Frownlow Medal Hall of Fame, while code-hopper Karmichael Hunt also faced court on drugs charges.
Tobin will stand trial in 2018. Meanwhile, don’t be surprised if Uncle Trevor fires down some in-swinging thunderbolts during the post-lunch backyard cricket game on Christmas Day.
