The future of Adam Elliott at the Bulldogs is hanging in the balance after the Canterbury back-rower was kicked out of a restaurant over the weekend.

Elliott has been stood down from the final two games of the NRL season pending an investigation into why he was asked to leave a Gold Coast establishment.

It has since emerged that Elliott left to go to the toilets with NRLW player Millie Boyle, but Brisbane player Boyle insists all the pair did was kiss in the bathrooms.

“Look, all we did was have a kiss in the bathroom," Boyle told the Daily Telegraph.

"It’s been taken way out of context. It’s a big kerfuffle about nothing.”

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Elliott and Boyle went to the bathroom because they didn't want to be seen by wives and partners of other Bulldogs players.

It's the latest in a string of dramas for Elliott after the back-rower was the face of the Bulldogs' Mad Monday dramas in 2018, prompting him to later plead guilty to wilful and obscene exposure.

He was then back in the headlines at the start of 2021 when he was caught kissing former teammate Michael Lichaa's partner at a house party.

That prompted the 26-year-old to give up drinking and begin attending alcohol counselling, before having his first drink again on Sunday.

Phil Gould speaks out about Adam Elliott incident

Elliott spoke with NRL integrity unit investigators on Monday over the latest incident, with Bulldogs general manager Phil Gould confirming the restaurant had told the club that he complied with the venue's exit orders.

"It's grade-five stupidity at the moment," Gould told Nine's 100% Footy program.

"Every time a player like Adam Elliott who has a list of priors puts himself out there to be criticised again, we drag up all of that.

"And that affects the club, it affects the brand, the sponsors, the fans, and particularly when the club is not performing very well it leaves a sour taste in everyone's mouth who is associated with the club.

"It has to be dealt with swiftly, Adam understands that and we will deal with it as swiftly as we can."

The integrity unit are also looking at whether any biosecurity rules were breached, including if the venue is classified as a restaurant rather than a pub.

They will also determine how Elliott and other players got to the venue, given public transport and ride-sharing is off limits under the protocols.

Gould said players had attended a club function on Sunday afternoon, before another function at the team hotel with players' wives and families.

"Everyone at 8pm was told to go to bed, they did," Gould said.

"A few of the girlfriends went out and then the partners went out and had a drink with them and come back.

"A few of the single blokes decided to tag along as well and that's where they put themselves in this environment."

Elliott has re-signed with the Bulldogs until the end of 2023 last year, with the club having to fight hard to keep him with strong competition from the Warriors.
