Missing teen located safe and well near Tweed Heads

A teen missing in the state’s North has been located safe and well.

On the eve of the NRL’s White Ribbon Walk to support the national campaign to end violence against women, reports that Manly Sea Eagles forward Richard Fa’aoso has been charged over an alleged domestic incident are circulating after he allegedly lead police on a drunken car pursuit through Sydney suburbs.

The National Rugby League Integrity Unit is investigating an incident in relation to Manly’s Richie Fa’aoso and is assisting with counselling support for both him and his family.

The NRL was advised of the player being charged last night and the Integrity Unit has been in contact with both the Police and the Club.

‘We have clear procedures on any behavioural matter and Manly has complied with those’, said NRL Chief Operating Officer, Mr Jim Doyle, today.

There are police matters here that we have to allow to take their course but we are also able to look at some issues and to ensure that there is welfare support for the player and his family.

‘Until we do have the opportunity to assess the facts it is not possible to make any further comment.’
