Rabbitohs statement on 2014 incident
Two South Sydney Rabbitohs players, Luke Burgess and John Sutton, were involved in an incident in Arizona at the end of the team’s high altitude training camp last year.
The Rabbitohs informed the NRL Integrity Unit of the incident straight away and have kept the Integrity Unit informed along the way.
It related to alleged disorderly behaviour of the two players, who were charged. Charges that were laid have since been withdrawn.
Despite the charges being withdrawn, the players were disciplined internally by the Club for breaching the Club’s Code of Conduct, in consultation with the NRL, and the NRL is completely satisfied by the actions taken by the Club.
