After relieving himself, Dew turns to the camera and smiles uncomfortably.

Mark Evans, CEO of Gold Coast Suns, confirmed the incident when contacting The Courier Mail, but declined to comment further.
In the background of the video, Dew can be heard by his colleagues, including someone asking, “Do you play for the Canterbury Bulldogs?”
The NRL side has repeatedly landed in hot water for off-pitch dramas in recent years.
The former Port Adelaide and Hawthorn champions took over as coach of the contending team in early 2019 and is widely acclaimed for developing the squad.

Several AFL players have been sent home from Queensland for violating COVID-19 rules

Queensland Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk has come under fire for authorizing the AFL to set up private hubs in the state it controls after a number of players and officials were involved in scandals.
The Richmond Tigers couple Sydney Stack and Callum Coleman-Jones were sent home and banned for 10 weeks after falling out outside a strip club.
The AFL is currently investigating Harley Bennell for a possible violation of the strict COVID-19 rules agreed so that the league could be set up in the state.
There have been similar problems in other hubs around the country, including in Perth, where Sydney Swans star Elijah Taylor was caught sneaking his then-girlfriend into his team’s private hotel accommodation.
Police have since accused Taylor of domestic violence after an alleged incident involving him and the same woman, his now ex-girlfriend, Lekahni Pearce.
