Herald Sun journalist Mark Robinson believes that the two Hawthorn players at the center of rape allegations late last year will not be charged.

“My belief is that investigation is over and there will be no charges whatsoever laid against two Hawthorn players,” Robinson said on SEN Radio on Friday.

“It will be announced very, very soon – we can’t say too much more at this stage but they were being investigated for rape and now my understanding is it’s not going to happen.

“So, where does that story start and we know where it’s ended – how does it get from the start to the end? I’ll put it under the umbrella of the crazy world we live in.”
