Hurrell fined by Warriors in sex tape controversy
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — The New Zealand Warriors rugby league club says Konrad Hurrell has been fined $5,000 and ordered to undergo counselling after a video involving him and a local actress was leaked on the internet.
The Warriors launched an investigation after the video allegedly depicting the 22-year-old player involved in a sex act in a car appeared briefly on a social media site.
Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah says “While the incident involved two consenting adults, his action in sharing the content with others was unacceptable and inappropriate.”
Hurrell apologized for embarrassing the club and his family, saying “I made a bad decision but I will learn from this.”
Scurrah says the club has informed the National Rugby League’s integrity unit of the sanction.
