Sam Burgess is one of the best players in Rugby League and one of the toughest forwards in the history of the South Sydney Rabbitohs. After signing a new four-year contract this month, he’s the club’s $3.2 million man.
But today all that is under threat.
The 29-year-old father of one has been unmasked by News Corp as one of the Rabbitohs players involved in a damning team sexting scandal.
According to The Daily Telegraph, 29-year-old Burgess was among a group of players who exposed themselves, without consent, to a 23-year-old women in a series of video chats – an exchange, she said, that left her feeling “violated and uncomfortable”.
The woman, who has not been identified, shared screenshots of the footage reportedly taken the evening of May 26, in which a man flashes his backside and another shows his bare torso and genitals.
While their faces are reportedly obscured, the woman claims the footage came from a verified Facebook account in Sam Burgess’ name.
