Dragons Star Spared Jail For Hammer Attack



St George Illawarra playmaker Junior Amone has avoided prison after he was found guilty of arming himself with a hammer and chasing a tradesman off a roof during a heated dispute.

But the 21-year-old walked out of Wollongong Local Court on Monday without his father Talatau Amone who was sentenced for two and a half years with a non-parole period of 12 months for the same incident.

Meanwhile in another Aussie Court yesterday, Daily Telegraph and Fox Sports rugby league journalist, Paul Kent is fighting allegations he attacked a 33-year-old woman at his home in May, 2023.

Body-worn footage played for the Court showed the woman telling officers that Mr Kent had had his hands “around my neck”.
