The Raiders’ season could get a whole lot worse with fullback Jack Wighton involved in an ACT Police investigation.
The Raiders have issued the following statement:
“The Canberra Raiders are aware of an incident involving Jack Wighton and have been cooperating with ACT Policing on their investigation.
“The Raiders have notified the NRL Integrity unit and will not be making any further comment as the incident is an ongoing police investigation.”
The incident is understood to have occurred at a Civic nightclub.
The Raiders might have to stand down Wighton until the investigation is complete, which would be a huge blow to the Green Machine as they look to win their first match of the season.
