Burgess cleared over sexting scandal


//

Star South Sydney forward Sam Burgess has been cleared of any wrongdoing over the scandal that allegedly saw lewd images and video shared with a woman via Facebook.

The club will take no further action after concluding its investigation, which took place in co-operation with the NRL Integrity Unit, found no player engaged in any conduct that breached their contract, or the club’s Code of Conduct.

The panel interviewed Souths players and staff, while the NRL Integrity Unit spoke to the woman at the centre of the allegations.

On Tuesday Burgess spoke of the stress the saga was causing his family.

“It’s been a tough process to go through,” he said.

“I just want to protect my family in this whole thing. I’ve got a wife and a daughter, my wife’s heavily pregnant. I just want them to be safe and happy and in my current situation at home there’s just no chance of that.

Souths face the Roosters tomorrow night for a spot in the grand final.

MORE TO COME.
