The Newcastle Knights have today supported the National Rugby League Integrity Unit’s move to issue player Caitlin Moran with a one game suspension and undisclosed fine, wholly suspended for a period of 12 months, in relation to a post she made on social media on Friday 9 September 2022.
Moran today met with National Rugby League Chief Executive Officer Andrew Abdo to discuss the situation, after which the following actions were determined.
Moran will not play in Sunday’s round five NRLW clash against the St. George-Illawarra Dragons at Central Coast Stadium.
She will also be required to attend education and training as recommended by the NRL Wellbeing and Education department in consultation with the Club and the Australian Rugby League Indigenous Council.
In addition, the Club has committed to undertake further educational programs for both NRLW and NRL squads.
The Club has and will continue to provide Moran with appropriate support and will be making no further comment on the matter.
