Wicks' brother in court

GRAFTON’S Brett Wicks will not join his brother, Newcastle Knights rugby league star Danny, when he faces court on drugs charges in Newcastle next month.

Brett Wicks, 22, fronted Grafton Local Court yesterday to face nine charges of supplying a prohibited drug (not cannabis).

The prosecution asked the court to transfer Brett Wicks case to Newcastle so it could be heard at the same time as his co-accused brother on February 3.

However, magistrate Kim Pogson disagreed and wanted the case kept in Grafton until the briefs of evidence were served.

A woman named as a co-accused, Tristen Davenport, 25, also faced court on five charges of supplying a prohibited drug (not cannabis).

Danny Wicks, 24, a former Grafton Ghosts junior, quit the Knights just before Christmas after he was charged with six counts of supplying prohibited drugs and two counts of possession.

He was caught in a police operation that staged simultaneous raids in Grafton and Newcastle.

Wicks and Davenport will face court in Grafton again on April 19.
