The Gold Coast Titans will work closely with the NRL Integrity Unit’s investigation into an incident during last night’s match against the Newcastle Knights.
The club’s immediate priority is the welfare of Tyrone Peachey.
“Our immediate focus is Tyrone Peachey as the impact of an event like this can have a toll on the individual. Tyrone has our absolute support,’’ CEO Steve Mitchell said.
“We’re extremely proud of our Indigenous heritage. The Titans have the highest number of Indigenous players in our top 30 roster of any club in the NRL. The contribution of Indigenous players to our Club both on and off the field cannot be understated.”
“We as a Club are committed to eliminating discrimination from our game, and do not stand for any sort of harassment, bullying and victimisation.”
The club will not make any further comment until the investigation is complete.
