A Brisbane weekend brawl involving the Samoa rugby league team is the subject of an investigation by the NRL integrity unit.
The NRL integrity unit is investigating an incident involving the Samoa rugby league team over the weekend in which up to eight people were arrested, including North Queensland threequarter Tautau Moga.
According to reports, Moga was partying with his Samoa teammates ahead of their Four Nations opener against England on Saturday, when a disagreement broke out at the Hot Gossip nightclub in Fortitude Valley on Sunday morning.
Moga is said to be one of eight men charged over offences including public nuisance and assault.
Canterbury utility Reni Maitua was also believed to be present at the nightclub when a scuffle broke out between the Samoan players and another group of men and police were called.
Samoa team management released a statement on Monday.
“Team management are aware of the issue. The NRL integrity unit is investigating,” the statement read.
“There is no further comment until the matter is resolved.”
Samoa players involved in the incident could face sanctions ahead of Saturday’s match at Suncorp Stadium.
