An NRL star has been caught in a fake extortion video of a chilling confrontation alleging he assaulted and threatened his former manager

The video was made after 30-year-old Taylor recently won a civil court against Miles that ruled him over 350 over a four year periodHad exempted $ 000

The video, which has since been privatized on YouTube, shows two men involved in a heated argument in the back seat of a moving car

Elijah Taylor (pictured with wife Poko in 2018) insists he wasn’t filmed in an ugly confrontation that went viral online before it went private

“Give me a good reason why I shouldn’t beat you up,” asks Jase

The other man replied: ‘Cause we went a long way back and I fucked myself I lost the money’

He pulls out what appears to be a Stanley knife and threatens to stab the other man unless he pays
