Inside the Danny Wicks Drug Trafficking Scandal

LiSTNR’s new Crime Insiders: Detectives episode out today features former Detective Craig Semple, speaking about former Newcastle Knights Superstar Danny Wicks – who was charged and convicted of drug trafficking. Craig offers a never before heard insight into how they caught Danny and offers stark warnings for sportspeople getting involved in drugs and how it can lead to organised crime.


  • He speaks about how Danny was under covert surveillance, how he was and it how it threw his career and sport into disrepute.
  • He gave insight into the culture of organised crime and sport in Australia.
  • As well as arresting high profile sports stars, former NSW Detective Sergeant Craig Semple has tackled some of Australia's most vicious, and high profile outlaw motorcycle gangs. Craig's career takes some incredible turns - including a high profile murder case in Yamba which shocked almost all of the NSW police department, and several high intensity bikie operations which ended Craig's career, and almost his life.
  • His honesty, candour and emotional vulnerability goes beyond.
  • Listen as host Brent Sanders talks deeply with Craig.
