"We are an inclusive sport and we pride ourselves on our diversity," Abdo said.

"I have requested the NRL Integrity Unit investigate the allegations as a matter of urgency.

"We will speak to all parties involved in order to get to the bottom of the allegations and ensure a fair and respectful process for all.

"Player welfare is our absolute priority. We will do everything we can to make sure our players feel safe and supported.
