Josh Reynolds has been charged with a domestic violence offence after an alleged altercation with his long-term girlfriend.
Reynolds, 30, is signed on with the Wests Tigers for the 2020 season, but was told at the end of the 2019 season that he was free to negotiate with other clubs.
He has been charged by the NSW Police, with both Reynolds and the club in talks with the NRL Integrity Unit regarding the matter.
“The NRL takes any allegation of violence or disrespect towards women extremely seriously,” the NRL said in a statement on Thursday.
“The Integrity Unit is seeking further information from NSW Police before determining any immediate action.”
Wests Tigers have said they would be making no further comment due to the matter of the situation.
