The South Sydney Rabbitohs were informed today that the NRL Integrity Unit was re-opening an investigation into an incident that occurred in Flagstaff, Arizona in November involving two players contracted to the Rabbitohs at the time, Luke Burgess and John Sutton.

The Rabbitohs will continue to openly assist the NRL Integrity Unit with its investigations.

The Rabbitohs maintain that they informed the NRL Integrity Unit of the incident immediately upon becoming aware of it and continued to apprise the NRL of all information that came to the Club’s knowledge at the time.
