Dale ‘Rowdy’ Shearer has taken aim at Valentine Holmes with a hilarious re-enactment of the NRL star’s shocking photo involving a bag of white powder.
Homes, 28, was issued a breach notice by the NRL’s integrity unit after a photo appearing to show the Cowboys star holding a small bag of white powder between his teeth emerged on social media.
Holmes insists that the image was part of a prank gone wrong and denies any alleged drug taking.
And now Shearer has had a cheeky pop at Holmes. The Maroons legend shared his own impersonation of Holmes’ viral photo, holding a packet of salt between his teeth with a beer in hand.

After the Holmes photo circulated online, North Queensland released the following statement: ‘The North Queensland Cowboys are aware of a photo posted to social media by a Cowboys player this morning.
‘The club is conducting an investigation as well as assisting the NRL Integrity Unit. The Cowboys will make no further comment until the investigations are completed.’
A guide to possible action over the photo can be found in the case of Melbourne Storm star Cameron Munster, who was pictured holding a bag containing white powder in a scandal that emerged in September 2021.
Munster and ex-teammate Brandon Smith were questioned by the Integrity Unit over leaked mobile phone footage that showed them in a hotel room with a mystery substance on the coffee table.
The five-eighth also featured in a second clip showing him dancing shirtless on a table while holding what appears to be a small bag containing white powder.
It was reported that the footage was taken shortly after the Storm were knocked out of the finals series by Penrith.

Munster was fined $30,000 by the NRL and copped a suspended $100,000 fine from his club, as well as being dropped from the team’s leadership group.
Holmes’ final game for the season came last Saturday when his Cowboys were knocked out of finals contention in their 44-12 loss to Penrith.
He starred for Queensland in their State of Origin series win over NSW this year and broke the Cowboys’ scoring record when he clocked up 30 points from two tries and 11 goals in the 74-0 victory over the Wests Tigers in round 18.
