The South Sydney Rabbitohs acknowledge the receipt of a National Rugby League breach notice today relating to the NRL Integrity Unit’s findings following its re-opened investigation into events that took place during the Club’s high altitude training camp in Arizona in November 2014.

The Club will consider its position on this matter over the next five business days and reserves the right to respond to the breach notice on both the merits of the findings and the severity of the proposed penalty.

The Club notes that there is no proposed finding by the NRL that the Club had actual knowledge that the dismissal of the charges was based on a lawful financial compromise. Nor has the NRL sought to vary the sanctions imposed by the Club on the players concerned.

The Club will be making no further comment until the Club has determined its position on the matter.
