Packer caught urinating on Brisbane pitch

WARRIORS prop Russell Packer could face a fine after TV cameras caught him urinating on the Lang Park pitch before his side's NRL win over the Brisbane Broncos on Monday night.

Fox Sports cameras caught Packer in the moment before the match kicked off as the Warriors went on to thrash the Broncos 56-18.

The act was a breach of NRL code and Packer could face a fine for his actions.

He later admitted his transgression on Twitter.

"Good win when u gotta go u gotta go lol," Packer tweeted after the match.

Former Manly prop Don McKinnon was famously fined $1000 for also urinating on the Lang Park pitch in 1988.

Packer crossed over for his first try of the season last night, one of the Warriors' 10 tries, as his side eased to their fourth win of 2013.
