Matthew Lodge released from custody, facing 25-years in jail

SACKED Wests Tigers NRL forward Matthew Lodge has been released from custody in New York after spending the weekend locked up with killers and rapists at the infamous Rikers Island prison.

Lodge made the US$50,000 (A$68,910) bond, comprising US$20,000 (A$27,565) cash, on Monday (Tuesday AEDT) morning, a New York Corrections spokesperson told AAP.
