Melbourne Storm can confirm three of its players have been interviewed by the NRL Integrity Unit today.
Storm CEO, Justin Rodski, said the players – Cameron Munster, Brandon Smith and Chris Lewis – had all cooperated fully with the NRL Integrity Unit investigation.
“The club is taking this matter extremely seriously. We are very disappointed to be in this position and will be thorough in our response,” Rodski said
“The players involved have fully cooperated with the NRL and the NRL Integrity Unit investigation. It is our understanding this investigation is unlikely to be concluded this week.
“Melbourne Storm unashamedly sets high standards and makes no apologies for protecting and upholding the professionalism and values of our organisation.
“The club is conducting its own investigation into the matter and will provide an update on our findings in conjunction with the NRL when both processes have concluded.
“The club will make no further comment on the matter until the NRL Integrity Unit has concluded its investigations.” Rodski said.
