The South Sydney Rabbitohs would like to thank the NRL and Penrith Panthers, in particular CEO Brian Fletcher and Executive General Manager Phil Gould, for their prompt, efficient and appropriate handling of the racial vilification of Greg Inglis in Round 2 at Panthers Stadium. 

Rabbitohs General Manager of Football, Shane Richardson, said: “We want to thank the team at the NRL, Brian and Phil for the way they have dealt with a particularly difficult situation for Greg as well as the game itself.

“They have kept Greg and our Club up-to-date on the investigation and the process the whole way through which gave Greg and us confidence, knowing the issue was being handled appropriately and as a priority.

“We agree with the notices that have been handed to the people involved and we hope that this is the next step in stamping out these kinds of incidents at sporting events and in society.”
