“He addressed the team and it was pretty full on for him to get in front of the group and admit he stuffed up, which he did,” Kaufusi said on Wednesday.
“He’s come back with some PBs [personal bests] – I think he’s taken this to his heart and very personal. He wants to show us it was a mistake and he’s going to do the best he can for this team going forward.
“He was running well today. He came back in good nick.
“He not so much put it to bed but he admitted he stuffed up. That speaks volumes [about him] to stand in front of your mates and say you stuffed up. He will do everything he can to do the best thing by the team going forward.”
Storm lock Dale Finucane, who is a vice-captain, said Addo-Carr looked ready to atone when play resumed.
“If any player makes a mistake, it’s important at our club that we address that,” Finucane said.
“He’s done the wrong thing. He’s sorry for it and he’s paid a price financially and that’s why that Monday educational session [from the NRL] was so important because it laid down the rules in black and white on what we can and can’t do.
“We were given a document with who to call if you are unsure on something. There is no excuse now for anything to be unclear for any players.
