The NRL is expected to clear young Brisbane Broncos star Kotoni Staggs of any wrongdoing after he was caught up in an alleged revenge porn attack that was circulated on social media on Tuesday.

Staggs was allegedly filmed while engaging in sexual intercourse with a woman, and appeared to be aware that he was being taped. The Herald has been told the video was consensual, although Staggs hadn’t agreed to its release. The NRL integrity unit is expected to speak to Staggs on Wednesday but the 21-year-old is not accused of any wrongdoing.

The Broncos released a statement on Tuesday afternoon in regards to the leaked video, which is believed to have been filmed prior to the strict COVID-19 restrictions placed on NRL players that prohibited them from engaging in such behaviour with people who didn’t live with them.

“The Brisbane Broncos have been made aware of a video recording involving Kotoni Staggs being circulated on social media,” the club said.

“The video is of a highly personal nature and has been released without his consent. The club is working closely with the NRL Integrity Unit, having alerted it as soon as becoming aware of the issue.”

The Broncos centre, who has been discussed as a potential NSW Blues bolter this year, has also sought legal advice and is expected to pursue the matter with police. When contacted by the Herald on Tuesday afternoon, Queensland Police said they were unaware of a complaint being lodged in relation to the matter.
