    Default Titans player Dan Sarginson granted bail

    Titans player Dan Sarginson granted bail after facing Gold Coast court for assault

    Titans player Dan Sarginson has faced a Gold Coast court after being charged with assault.

    The English Super League recruit briefly appeared in the Southport Magistrates Court this morning charged with assault occasioning bodily harm relating to an incident that occurred at Burleigh Heads late last month.

    He had his matter adjourned and was granted bail.

    Sarginson will appear in court again on July 21.

    This is the first I have heard of this.

    This story makes it appear very very trivial

    Just recapping, it's Dan that is having to go through the court system, not the bouncers?? Hope he lodges a complaint with the security firm and launches legal proceedings against the club. This is a stitch up. Check out the footage.

    Here's another link to the footage. I'm just going to leave it to you to decide for yourself.

    JB and everyone else I'd recommend you watch both links.
    The Facebook ch9 one has the initial incident of Sarginson pushing the bouncer.
    The JB GCBulletin link has the very violent aftermath to it.

    On another note I Question when a GC Titans player is in a skirmish the security Footage is available and its pursued but when it's Jimmy the Judas possibly attacking a random young lady who's a member of our community and Jimmy is a Drongoe player then all of a sudden it's too hard to pursue.
    Just a bit annoying

    Dumb for pushing, but the bouncer had a few jabs. Has a pretty good lawyer so should be sweet.

    Update: Watch half way and the bouncer kicks him. Dog act!

    Bods, if that's a measured act of self defense for being pushed then I'm mates with Paul Gallen. But I agree, the footage got released quickly when others can make it go away. But I think the footage more shows him as a victim. The bouncer that lays into on the ground should be done for assault, simple as that.

    It was way over the top. Everyone comes out of this incident badly.

    Just watched the video, hard to tell what Dan did was a shove or some kind of punch, I'm leaning towards a shove, something you'd see on the field. What followed was brutal, especially that sick act of kicking him. Disproportionate to the initial act.

    A normal unfit punter or someone with some sort of medical condition could easily have been killed, fortunately for them it was a fit and healthy professional sportsman.

    If it happened to a Drongoes player the Courier Mail would have been all over it and wanting the joint shut down.

    I'm not going to enter into the who's right or wrong in this case, as I haven't even bothered viewing the footage.

    My only concern is why Sarginson is even with us. He hasn't set the world on fire since he's been here, and seems to have about as much impact on the game as Wilbur does. All I get from skim reading the article is that another Goose from our club has done us a disservice to our name within Surfers precinct, not particularly bothered to who's in the right or wrong.

    That's nothing, the other day the Hot Tomato hourly news was talking about Titans player Paul Carter supplying cocaine to SKD.

    My advice is watch the footage.
