NRL players Adam Elliott and Asipeli Fine have received a conditional release order after a "disgraceful" performance involving lewd behaviour and simulated sex acts during Canterbury's Mad Monday celebrations.
Elliott, 24 and Fine, 26, were charged after a news photographer snapped them nude on the balcony of the Harbour View Hotel at The Rocks on September 3.
The players were supported by teammates in Downing Centre Local Court on Monday when they entered guilty pleas to charges of wilful and obscene exposure.
Deputy Chief Magistrate Jane Mottley subsequently placed both men on two-year conditional release orders without recording convictions.
According to the agreed facts, Fine was seen naked in CCTV footage raising a bench stool over his head while thrusting backwards and forward moving his genitals up and down.
The pair was cheered on by the crowd as Elliott, who was also naked, climbed onto a stool before falling down with Fine catching him.
They then got dressed before Fine knelt on a table and pulled down his underwear.
A club member poured liquid, believed to be water, down his genitals into a schooner glass.
Elliott removed his clothes again and climbed onto the next table, later holding his genitals while club staff and players gathered around.
Ms Mottley labelled the behaviour as "disgraceful" and said the players had been egged on by the "mob" and "pack mentality" of the group.
"You put on a performance for a crowd and it just happened that performance could have been seen by a member of the public on the street," she said.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge climb causeway also has a view of the rooftop terrace.
"It went on and on and on and it seemed you were encouraged to continue to dress and undress," the magistrate said.
"It goes without saying boys ... sometimes private things end up in the public domain."
The magistrate said not only had they brought shame upon themselves and their team but they had damaged the reputation of the code.
"That's a very heavy burden for you to carry."
