Super League players Marcus Bai and Stephen Kearney will give evidence by videolink to the Supreme Court in New South Wales in a high-profile case
brought by ex-Parramatta centre Jarrod McCracken.
McCracken is suing Melbourne Storm and their two former players, claiming that his career was ended by a spear tackle by Bai and Kearney while he was
playing for Wests Tigers in 2000.
McCracken, now 34, says the tackle - in which his 106-kilogram body was propelled head first into the ground - was intentional.
Bai is in his second season with Leeds Rhinos, having been a member of their Grand Final-winning team last October, while Kearney has joined Hull but
has yet to make his debut because of injury.
