Dan Kilian and Tumut in limbo over police charges

Dan Kilian’s future at Tumut is in doubt as the Blues recruit tries to deal with an ongoing court case in Queensland.

Kilian has been a revelation for the Group Nine ladder leaders but when he'll next play is up in the air.

IN DOUBT: Uncertainty surrounds Tumut forward Dan Kilian's future as he deals with criminal charges in Queensland which prevents him from playing.

He missed the win over Cootamundra on Sunday and coach Jarrad Teka isn’t sure his availability going forward.

“He’s on hold for the next few weeks,” Teka said.

“We are waiting to hear back from his solicitor.

“All we know is he has to get his parole sorted, the conditions sorted and until then he can’t fly interstate.”

The rampaging forward has been flying in from Brisbane each week to play for the Blues.

Kilian will front on Supreme Court in Brisbane on Wednesday as he continues to face charges over drug trafficking and associating with outlaw bikies.

He’s currently on bail, after previously being remanded by Queensland Police.

Kilian has quickly become a fan favourite with the Blues due to his aggressive approach, but the charges have left his future clouded.

“He’s trying to sort his trial out as he’s got to be sentenced in Queensland,” Teka said.

“We are just waiting as he hasn’t been sentenced yet and doesn’t know what he can and can’t do as such.”

Teka thought the Blues noticed his absence as they struggled against winless Cootamundra on Sunday.

Coming off the bye, he thought the team took a long while to build into the contest.

“He’s been very handy for us and we haven’t got much depth so any player we lose is a bit of a blow for us,” Teka said. 

“We were a bit quiet on the weekend.

“He’s quite a dominating figure and whenever he’s not on the field it is going to have an affect on how we play and the kind of roll on we get."

Teka is looking for a better, more clinical performance when the Blues host Young at Twickenham on Sunday.

“Young will be a much tougher opposition,” Teka said.

“We have to get back into putting in the hard yards this week.”
