NRL's Smith and cricket's Clarke 'clash'

Parramatta playmaker Tim Smith is in the news again - for all the wrong reasons.

The Eels playmaker was reportedly involved in a bar-room scuffle with national team cricketer Michael Clarke on Sunday night and subsequently thrown out by bouncers at Cronulla hotel Northies.

Smith allegedly pushed Clarke after a heated argument in front of other patrons at the pub at about 10pm, News Limited reported.

A patron at the club, who was witness to the incident, said the pair had to be broken up by security.

"They were in each other's faces. Then Smith pushed Michael Clarke and he got kicked out," the patron said.

It is understood Smith, who was drinking with teammate Mark Riddell, then moved on to nearby nightclub Fusion.

Smith's manager David Rioli said he had not discussed the matter with the young star, who is in camp with the Eels at Wyong ahead of their bye this weekend.

"As far as I know it wasn't a major incident," Rioli told the News Limited newspaper.

Just over a month ago the reigning Dally M Rookie of the year turned up drunk for Eels training along with Riddell and was stood down from first grade.
