NRL

The Melbourne Storm say the club is aware of a video which allegedly shows several players in a room where there is a white substance on the table.

Just days after the Storm were bundled out of the finals by Penrith, the club was forced to address the off-field scandal, with the NRL Integrity Unit notified.

“Melbourne Storm is aware of a video provided to the NRL Integrity Unit yesterday,” the statement read.

“The club and players involved are cooperating with the NRL Integrity Unit investigation.

“As the matter is currently under investigation, the club is not in a position to comment further until this process has been completed.”

According to Sydney Morning Herald reporter Michael Chammas, the NRL is expected to interview players regarding the video today as it continues its investigation.

The video emerged only a day after Warriors young gun Reece Walsh was arrested on the Sunshine Coast, and later admitted to being in possession of cocaine.
