Blake Ferguson charged for indecent assault

Blake Ferguson charged for indecent assault

NSW State of Origin winger Blake Ferguson has been charged with indecently assaulting a woman at a bar in Cronulla on Sunday night.

The incident allegedly occurred at the 2230 Bar and Restaurant.

It’s believed rugby league teammate Josh Dugan was also present at the time, but no allegations have been made against him.

Ferguson has now left the NSW Origin camp and has had his NRL contract suspended indefinitely.

The 23-year-old was granted conditional bail to appear at Waverley Local Court on July 16.

It comes as South Sydney’s George Burgess has been charged with wilful damage, after he allegedly threw a street sign through a car window in Cairns overnight.

The NRL team was in Cairns for their clash against the Titans on the weekend.  

Burgess has since been stood down by the club.

“The Rabbitohs informed the NRL Integrity Unit of the incident on Monday morning,” the club said in a statement.

Burgess is due to appear in the Cairns magistrates court on July 10.
