The SMH has word that Canberra Raiders star Blake Ferguson has got himself in more bother:
Police are investigating an incident at a nightclub in Sydney’s south involving NSW State of Origin winger Blake Ferguson.
No arrests have been made but police said they were investigating an incident involving the footballer at 2230 Restaurant and Bar in Cronulla about 10.30pm on Sunday.
“Police have seized CCTV footage from the location and are continuing with further inquiries,” Miranda police duty officer Inspector Mick Merrett said.
We’re hearing Josh Dugan was also at the pub, and that the allegation is of indecent assault.
UPDATE: The Raiders have made a terse statement:
The Canberra Raiders have been made aware of an incident involving Blake Ferguson last night at a Sydney licenced premise. The incident is currently under investigation.
“We have been notified by the NRL of an incident involving Blake Ferguson last night,” Raiders CEO Don Furner said. “At this stage we are working with Police, NSW League management and the NRL integrity unit and will make no further comment the facts can be properly established.”
FURTHER UPDATE: The ABC brings word he’s been charged with indecent assault:
“Ferguson will not take part in the second State of Origin game and the NRL will reserve its decision on when he may be able to resume playing until it is in a position to assess any further relevant facts with the Canberra Raiders and the NRL Integrity Unit.”
