It is not the first time Musgrove has come to grief at the Coogee nightspot. In 2018, Musgrove and former Penrith reserve-grader Liam Coleman were charged with indecently assaulting a woman on the dancefloor. Two charges were dropped but the duo were found guilty of assault in October 2019, before being acquitted on appeal in April 2020.

In December, the Tigers re-signed Musgrove on a three-year deal until the end of 2024. The former Rabbitohs played just six games for the Tigers in 2020 after a two-year hiatus from the game due to an ongoing foot injury.

At the time of the re-signing, coach Michael Maguire sang the youngster’s praises for being able to turn his career around.

“I’m really happy to see Zane re-sign with the club for another three years,” he said. “I know how hard Zane has had to work to get to this point in his career and I have no doubt that his best football is still ahead of him.

“Zane’s presence and leadership around the organisation has grown a lot in the past few years, and he has a tremendous hunger to be successful in all that he does — constantly raising the standards of himself and those around him.

“He is a player with a great work ethic who adds a lot to our side overall and I’m looking forward to watching him develop for many years to come.”
