JARROD Mullen has pleaded guilty to supplying cocaine.
The former Knight and NSW Origin rugby league representative pleaded guilty in Newcastle Local Court on Wednesday morning to one charge of supplying a prohibited drug.
The prosecution withdrew three other counts.
Two charges of supplying cocaine and one count of supplying a trafficable quantity of a prohibited drug were dismissed.
Magistrate David Price granted a defence application for Mullen to be sentenced at Wollongong Local Court - given the former star halfback now lives in the Illawarra.
Mullen will be sentenced on February 26.
