Brisbane CEO Paul White believes David Fifita's confronting stint in a Bali jail cell will deter other NRL players from visiting the popular off-season holiday spot.
The Broncos' emerging star returned to Brisbane on Tuesday morning after spending three days locked up for an alleged assault of a security guard early on Saturday.
The 19-year-old reached a "peace agreement" with the complainant in order to secure his release, with the club confirming compensation had been arranged through Fifita and his lawyer, and not the club.
It is the second incident at the Kuta nightspot in the past month after Melbourne prop Nelson Asofa-Solomona's involvement in a brawl that ended in a suspended $15,000 fine and three-match ban.
White was careful when commenting on the Indonesian justice system but said Fifita's NRL colleagues would have taken note of both players' misadventures.
"I think there will be plenty, not just at our club but at other clubs, who will have looked at what happened the last few weeks and reconsider - not so much going to that destination, because plenty of Australians holiday peacefully in Bali without incident - but your choice of where you go while you are over there," he said.
"David made a poor choice being in that nightclub precinct in that early hour of the morning.
"Sometimes you have got to accept that is where the fault lies."
The Broncos flew welfare officer Adam Walsh to Bali to assist Fifita, who had been holidaying with teammate Payne Haas.
"I do want to thank people in the rugby league community; plenty of people reached out to our club who knew contacts on the ground and who knew the operation of the systems and how things work over there," White said.
"Plenty of people reached out and gave us some guidance and even introduced us to people on the ground.
"It was great to have Walshy on the ground because he was able to coordinate those; he's played a key role in getting David out, and removing him from custody."
Fifita will now face the consequences of an NRL integrity unit investigation while White said the club would allow that process to unfold before considering any internal sanctions.
