South Sydney superstar Sam Burgess hopes the NRL’s integrity unit will finalise its investigation into the sexting scandal, which has engulfed the club, within the next two days.
Burgess addressed reporters on Tuesday, saying he’s keen for the “truth to come out” about allegations lewd images were sent to a young woman from one of his social media accounts, after a match earlier this season.
“While the investigation is going on we’ve been told to publicly make no comment … I’m following the process,” Burgess said before Saturday’s preliminary final against the Sydney Roosters.
“I’m not going into the detail of anything.
“I’m happy for the truth to come out.
“That’s going to be my answer to the majority of your questions.
“Hopefully within 24 hours, 48 hours I think it should be resolved.”
The saga has overshadowed the Rabbitohs’ preparations for their grand final qualifier against their traditional rivals at Allianz Stadium.
Burgess thanked his friends and family for their recent support during a “tricky few days”.
“It’s been a tough process to go through, (for) the family together, but fortunately I’ve got a strong wife,” he said.
“A wife who loves me. I’ve got great family, great friends, great support around me.
“You do feel it but I’ve had certain experiences in my life before, had serious emotions I’ve had to deal with, and football has always been great for me.”
