Millie Boyle made a triumphant return to the public eye on Monday night, stepping out at the NRL's night of nights - the Dally M awards.
The NRLW player has been in the headlines for the all wrong reasons in the last few weeks after she was caught in a 'toilet tryst' scandal with Bulldogs player Adam Elliott.
'WHY RISK IT': Expert's staggering call to cancel NRL grand final
But Boyle, who plays for the Broncos in the NRLW competition, put the scandal behind her as she bravely walked the red carpet in Brisbane for the prestigious awards ceremony.
Elliott was sacked by Canterbury earlier this month after his latest indiscretion proved one scandal too many for the club to forgive.
Leaving the forward without an NRL club for next season, the Bulldogs severed ties with the 26-year-old after his third off-field incident in recent years.
Elliott was stood down for the final two games of the NRL season after he was caught with Boyle in the bathroom of a Queensland bar and escorted out of the venue by security.
He was also fined $10,000 by the NRL for bringing the game into disrepute and failing to comply with biosecurity protocols after an integrity unit investigation.
Boyle, who has been friends with Elliott since childhood, insisted all the pair did was share a kiss.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the pair went to the bathrooms because they didn't want to be seen by wives and partners of other Bulldogs players.
A staff member reportedly had to retrieve a key to unlock the toilet cubicle door when Elliott and Boyle locked themselves in, before a shirtless Elliott was escorted from the restaurant by security in front of bemused patrons.
Adam Elliott's NRL career in tatters
Elliott was forced to front the Bulldogs board over the incident, where the decision was made to end his contract with two years remaining following backlash from fans and sponsors.
Patience was already wearing thin with the back-rower following previous misdemeanours including the club's infamous 2018 Mad Monday wreck and an incident involving the wife of ex-teammate Michael Lichaa earlier this year.
He then sought professional help for alcohol issues.
"Adam and the Bulldogs have decided it is in the best interests of both parties to go our separate ways," a short club statement read.
"We wish Adam all the best for the future."
Elliott stayed with the team in Queensland after he was stood down at the end of the season as the Bulldogs rallied around him in support.
There was high hopes for the Bega-born forward after he re-signed with the Bulldogs at the start of 2020.
However, he is now without a club for next season and battling to save his NRL career considering his off-field disciplinary record.
Boyle was issued a warning by the NRL for her conduct at the restaurant and will be given education and training regarding the obligations of NRL and NRLW players in public.
