The NRL Integrity Unit is investigating allegations a NSW player breached State of Origin Covid bubble rules by bringing a woman into the camp.
It comes after the Daily Mail reported that Blues rookie Api Koroisau had surreptitiously brought a woman, who was not his wife, into the camp twice during his debut series.
Foxsports.com.au contacted NRL and Koroisau’s club, Penrith, on Thursday night but the Panthers chose not to comment.
An NRL spokesman said; “NSWRL notified the NRL integrity unit of an alleged biosecurity breach following the second State of Origin game. The NRL Integrity Unit is currently investigating the incident.”
The NRL did not confirm the player’s identity or any other specifics.
The Daily Mail reported that the woman in question met Koroisau via Instagram and they started texting in early June.
The woman claims they met twice while he was at Camp Blues, and planned to meet a third time before Koroisau was put on hold after Queensland striker Jai Arrow was kicked out of Camp Origin for bringing a woman in wrong direction.
It is reported that the woman contacted Koroisau’s wife to warn her of the alleged incident.
