The National Rugby League has been embroiled in yet another scandal, this time involving the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
The club is investigating allegations made by a young woman that two players exposed their private parts to her during a FaceTime chat earlier this year.
The players have not be named but are understood to several of the club’s biggest names.
The woman, 23, emailed the club after the alleged incident on May 26 left her ‘violated and disgusted’, The Daily Telegraph reported.
The South Sydney Rabbitohs are investigating allegations made by a young woman that two players exposed their private parts to her during a FaceTime chat earlier this year
The woman allegedly took screenshots of the videochat, where a player pulled his pants down to exposed his genitals while the another bared his backside.
She says she was assured by a Rabbitohs football operations manager via email that her claims would be taken ‘seriously’ and that the club ‘will work to understand what has occurred’.
The woman claimed she hasn’t heard from the club since, despite several follow up emails.
‘I feel quite disappointed that my email has not been responded too (sic) since a few months ago,’ she wrote in August.
‘I find it disgusting how these boys think they can get away with this crap.’
Rabbitohs chief executive Blake Solly told The Daily Telegraph the club would contact the woman on Friday and speak to the players allegedly involved.
‘We are proud of our position on the Code of Conduct and if someone has breached that we want to investigate it,’ he said.

The allegations are an unwanted disruption as the Rabbitohs prepare for Saturday’s night do-or-die semi final against St George Illawarra Dragons at ANZ Stadium.
It comes a week after the NRL handed down one of its harshest ever sanctions on the Canterbury Bulldogs.
The club was fined a record $250,000 for its drunken Mad Monday celebrations which saw two players charged by police with obscene exposure.
