This latest incident brings back memories of a lost NRL premiership ring that was uncovered during a drug bust in Darwin in 2015.

The ring from South Sydney’s 2014 premiership victory was seized alongside methamphetamines, cannabis and steroids in a Tipperary Waters home in February, 2015.

South Sydney were given 20 rings on grand final day, 17 for the players, one for the chairman, one for the CEO and one for coach Michael Maguire, who re-gifted his to suspended hooker Isaac Luke.

Rabbitohs centre Dylan Walker lost his overboard during celebrations on Sydney Harbour the day after the 2014 grand final, but was since given a new one.

The rings are encrusted in 39 diamonds and cost around $8000 dollars to produce.
