John Hopoate

Hopoate only added to his long list of disgraced acts when he was disqualified in a fight against Shane Cameron in 2010. Former indiscretions during his league career included a king-hit on Keith Galloway, abusing a Warriors ball boy and of course inserting his fingers up an opponent's anus.
