Parramatta Eels player fined $5K for toilet sex tape

A Parramatta Eels player has been issued a breach notice and is facing a massive fine after a video of him having sex in a toilet cubicle spread on social media last week.

Footage of the unnamed player and a woman was circulated without their consent, with the woman reportedly looking into legal action against the person who filmed it.

The NRL is proposing to fine the player $5,000, alleging he brought the game into disrepute with his actions.

However, the league says that it will support the player if he chooses to pursue legal action against the person who filmed the video.

“The National Rugby League (NRL) has issued a Parramatta Eels player with a breach notice alleging he brought the game into disrepute after a video emerged of him participating in an intimate act at a public venue. The notice proposes the player is fined $5000,” the NRL said in a statement released today.

“All players are public figures and have a responsibility to ensure their actions do not risk damaging the brand and reputation of the game. In this circumstance, the NRL believes the player failed in that responsibility.

“The NRL accepts the player is the alleged victim of an illegally filmed video and is offering both welfare support and assistance if he wishes to pursue criminal action against the individual who filmed the video.

“The NRL has determined the player did not breach any other NRL rule nor is there any complaint about the conduct of the player.

“The player has five days to respond to the NRL Breach Notice.”

If they were having s** in a public place they are breaking the law not the person who filmed it. Australia doesn’t have laws against taking photos in public places it does however have laws against s** in public places. It might be wrong but it’s not against the law
