NRL CEO Todd Greenberg deregistered Barba on Tuesday and said he couldn't foresee any way back for the former Dally M Medallist.

The career of reigning Super League Man of Steel Ben Barba is nearly certainly over with the RFL stating he will not be allowed to play in any English division if he is banned by the NRL.

"I can't see a time, at any time, in the future that he'll be welcomed back", into the NRL, Greenberg said.

The Sunday Telegraph is reporting police and the NRL Integrity Unit will investigate three separate incidents, including a heated verbal exchange in the swimming pool area of the hotel in front of several Cowboys players and their partners; an alleged physical clash inside the casino which was caught on CCTV; and another alleged physical incident in the carpark before the pair left together in a taxi.

BEN Barba may be forced to look overseas for a career lifeline after Rugby Australia said he wasn't welcome in their code if he's banned from the NRL.

"In the jurisdiction that I uphold there's no place for him".

Speaking to media today, Greenberg stated that the league will be showing an increasingly tougher stance towards players who commit serious public offences, particularly those regarding violence against women.

He went to French club rugby then to Super League in England, where he rebuilt his career, winning the Man of Steel award, and was offered a one-year deal by the Cowboys.

"I don't know what he's done and clearly it's a hypothetical in the sense of whether the player would want to come back and clearly whether any club would want him back".

Barba's behaviour and several other off-season incidents in the NRL will be discussed at a meeting of the ARL Commission in Sydney this Wednesday. He left the Sharks after being suspended for 12 weeks for a second breach of the NRL's illicit drugs policy.

Rugby Australia said yesterday Barba wasn't welcome in its code if he was banned from the NRL.

"It's a very clear message for a lot of guys in our sport that it a great privilege to play rugby league, to put a jersey on, to earn a significant incomes which they deserve as footballers, but it comes with real responsibility".
