St George Illawarra's Jack de Belin has been hit with additional charges over his alleged rape of a woman in Wollongong last December.
De Belin will face Wollongong Local Court on Wednesday, but will now have to answer to three rape charges, instead of the single charge he was initially hit with.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, police added two charges of aggravated sexual intercourse without consent against de Belin earlier in May.
It has been revealed the same victim is related to all three charges, with the two additional charges relating to individual acts as part of the same sexual encounter.
The two extra charges were also committed "in the company of another person" according to police, with Shellharbour Sharks Group 7 player Callan Sinclair alleged as the other person involved.
It was alleged de Belin began having sex with the woman, before telling Sinclair "come on, have a go", as the woman was crying on the bed.
