NRL statement on Benji Marshall
The National Rugby League has been made aware of an incident involving Wests Tigers player Benji Marshall.
The Wests Tigers have already undertaken to make a full report to the NRL.
The NRL will closely monitor the report and any police investigation while also conducting any additional inquiries the NRL deems necessary. NRL inquires have, where appropriate, in the past been assisted by former police officers acting in an investigative role.
“It is always important that the club is given the opportunity to examine the facts and report to the NRL before we determine whether there is a need for intervention on our part,” NRL Chief Executive, Mr David Gallop, said today.
“This will also no doubt depend on some of the issues being investigated by police.
“Clearly it is in everyone’s interests to determine the matter as soon as possible.”
