Footy star Sam Burgess at centre of sexting scandal after lewd images were sent to a woman

England international Sam Burgess has been identified as the player in the midst of the Rabbitoh’s sexting scandal.

The football star’s Facebook account was used to solicit a nude video chat with a 23-year-old woman in May this year.

It has not been confirmed whether Burgess was the man in the footage but the social media account was verified to his name.

Stills from the woman’s encounter demonstrate the explicit nature of their interactions.

Images show a man exposing his torso and genitals to the woman during their video conversation.

Another man was photographed with his pants down and baring his behind, captured in screen shots from the live video.

South Sydney bosses refused to confirm who the players were, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Chief executive Blake Solly told the paper he had ‘constructive and helpful’ discussions with the woman. 

The young woman said she felt violated after the video chat took a dark turn on May 26.  

She said she struck up a conversation with the married footballer after finding a fake Tinder account using his images in Thailand.

He replied from the account ‘You swipe right?’ and said ‘The boys want to face time.’ 

The video chat began with the men relaxing in a restaurant after a win earlier that day.

The woman claimed she then received a series of calls from the footballer’s hotel room.

At the end of the exchange, the woman received a Facebook message which read ‘too much’.

Records show and email was received by the club’s operation manager on June 1 and she was told the matter was being taken ‘seriously’. 

But she claims the correspondence went quiet and her emails on June 5 and August 31 went unanswered.  

‘I first asked the club to investigate in May but, apart from an email acknowledging my complaint, no one got back to me,’ she said.

‘I just want this sort of behaviour to stop — the players think they’re indestructible.’
