In the short clip, Ponga and Mann are asked to step out of a toilet cubicle. Both men walk out, fully-clothed with drinks in hand.

“Oh, that’s a surprise,” the security guard can be heard saying as the two men walk out.

The damning footage comes after Ponga confirmed on Sunday his season was over due to strict concussion protocols.

He has been sidelined since the Knight’s round 19 clash with the Sydney Roosters.

“I’d be sweet for the last round but doing no contact for the year, it probably would be a wise thing not to play the last round,” Ponga said on Triple M.

Although, Fox League’s James Hooper suggested that wasn’t the real story, telling NRL 360: “You might have to get Pinocchio out again, we aren’t believing that fairytale are we?”

Newly signed football manager Peter Parr will front the media on Tuesday and News Corp Journalist Phil Rothfield believes it could be the end of Ponga’s reign as captain.

“I think it’s a really, really bad look and I know the Knights are really concerned about the PR side of it and the culture side of it,” he told NRL 360.

“Do you know how serious I think it is, I think he will be stripped of the captaincy over this.”
