The NRL Integrity Unit and the Parramatta Eels are working as a collective to investigate the matter.

“The Club has informed the NRL integrity unit and is taking the matter very seriously, particularly given the potential invasion of privacy of those involved.

“What are you hearing about another sex tape that is doing the rounds in the last 24 hours about an NRL player potentially caught up in another sex tape drama,” Laurie Daley asked Ritchie.
In response, Richie replied: “The video is going around, I received it last night.”
“It is a difficult one. It does look like a first grade player who is very well known. But we can’t prove that yet.
“You would have to go to the right channels to find out if it is the player and if there is any punishment looming.
“It looked like a sex act in a toilet. But until we know more. If we can determine the identity and if it is the player himself. There is more questions than answers.”
It is understood the woman involved is seeking aggravated damages in court from the player in question.
