An investigation into the Sam Burgess sexting scandal has found that he has no case to answer. 

The Rabbitohs released their findings into the behaviour of several players following a complaint which alleged inappropriate conduct by a South Sydney player in May.

‘Based on a thorough review of the available evidence before it, the Panel was not satisfied that any South Sydney player engaged in any actionable misconduct resulting in a breach of their NRL Playing Contract, the NRL Rules or the SSFC Code of Conduct,’ the club said in a statement.

Sam Burgess was the only player mentioned in the reports and said he was ‘happy for the full truth to come out’.

Earlier this week Burgess faced questions about the scandal ahead of the Rabbitohs’ Saturday preliminary final against the Roosters.

During the press conference, Burgess declined to directly address the allegations, saying there was an inquiry underway.

He said he expected the results of the inquiry would be revealed within 24 to 48 hours, and insisted ‘the truth will come out’.

The inquiry comes after explicit images of two players were sent to a young woman from Burgess’s Facebook account during a video chat which took place in May.

Screenshots from the video chat 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 screenshots from the live video. 

The results of the panel’s investigation mean no player will face further sanctions and all Rabbitohs players are available to face the Roosters in Saturday night’s preliminary final at ANZ Stadium.
