"Paul took the news as you'd expect, he took it quite hard and he was quite shocked by the news. The only thing that could have saved Vaughan was if the club felt it didn't have a legal right to terminate his deal. However, the Dragons were confident in their legal position to terminate Vaughan without offering him a chance to front the board given it was his third strike. St George Illawarra have been forced to admit failings in club culture after Paul Vaughan was sacked on Tuesday for hosting an illegal party at his home with 12 other players at the weekend. Speaking on Fox Sports' NRL 360 on Tuesday night, Vaughan gave an emotional apology to the community, the NRL and his family, saying he realised early on the significance of his actions. Paul Vaughan has been suspended for eight matches. Like Vaughan, Corey Norman has been slapped with a $50,000 fine, while Jack de Belin will hand over $42,000. This incident also marks the second time Vaughan has found himself under investigation for a biosecurity breach, after missing two games for visiting a cafe last year.
