A number of former NRL players are in the crosshairs over their involvement in the murder of former Sydney Roosters captain and ex-Gold Coast player Pat McInnes.
The pair were convicted of murder and conspiracy charges in June but were later acquitted of the lesser charges of causing grievous bodily harm.
Pat McBryde, a former Newcastle Knights player, is also facing a number of charges, including conspiracy to commit murder.
The hearing is expected to resume on Tuesday with the jury expected to decide if there is enough evidence to proceed against Pat Mcinnes for the murder charges.
The trial heard Pat McQueen had been out with friends at the Knights nightclub when he was attacked by two men who knocked him unconscious.
Pat McQueen was murdered at the Roosteries nightclub in June.
Former Newcastle Knights footballer Pat McQueens trial: ‘We’re a team’Former NRL players Pat McBride, left, and Pat McBay were also found guilty of conspiring to commit Murder.
They were both acquitted by a jury of the lower murder charge.
The former Knights captain was one of the players who stood by Pat McClinton during his trial, but has been criticised by some for failing to provide evidence to back up his story.
The hearing into Pat McBarren’s trial was originally scheduled for March 26 but was delayed for two weeks as a result of the murder case.
Pat’s family and supporters say they are hoping the hearing will be held in the lead up to the start of the NRL season on April 6.
The NSW Supreme Court has already heard Pat’s mother, wife, daughter and younger brother have already pleaded not guilty to the murder charge against them.
