‘Video evidence’ emerges claiming to show high-profile NRL player involved in drunken incident with a woman – just a day after video emerged of another player having sex in a toilet
The NRL has launched an investigation into an alleged drunken altercation involving Brisbane Broncos star Kotoni Staggs.
The league is examining video evidence after a woman made a complaint about his behaviour at a Brisbane venue, Seven News reported.
A day earlier, video emerged on social media which is alleged to show a Parramatta Eels player having sex with a woman in a public toilet.
The investigation comes just months after a teenage girl leaked a sex tape of herself with Staggs, 22, after he allegedly rejected her proposal of a threesome.

McKenzie Lorraine Robinson, 18, was fined $600 after pleading guilty to sharing the ‘first person’ footage of her engaged in an intimate act with Staggs between June 14 and August 5 without his consent.
The court heard Ms Robinson sent the vision to one person, is at least double her own age, and that person then distributed the video further.
Staggs last year opened up about the harrowing experience of learning the tape had been released, and said telling his tight-knit family about what had happened was his worst nightmare.
The 21-year-old said he was ‘shattered’ that his private life had been thrust into public domain.
‘I was embarrassed it came out. I didn’t want my family to see it, that was the one thing that I was worried about,’ he told The Courier Mail.
‘They had my back through it all. I was surprised by how well they took it and that made me feel a bit better.’

Despite the embarrassment for the up-and-coming Bronco, Staggs was cleared of any wrongdoing by the NRL’s integrity unit after the video was released.
‘It wasn’t my fault but I was still involved… there’s always ups and downs. You learn from your mistakes,’ he said.
On Wednesday, the video of the Parramatta Eels player emerged online after it was filmed over the toilet door by a bystander for five seconds.
The Parramatta Eels on Wednesday confirmed the video involved one of their players.

‘We understand that those on the video have been illegally filmed by another person without consent and that an attempt has been made to distribute the video to media outlet and on social media platforms,’ the club said.
The club said they contacted the NRL Integrity Unit, who are investigating.
Both the Eels and the NRL Integrity Unit are taking the matter ‘very seriously’ as the video is a ‘potential invasion of privacy of those involved’.
