Sea Eagles aware of Koroisau incident


Manly Sea Eagles said they are aware of an incident involving hooker Apisai Koroisau after the recruit was charged by police.

Koroisau, who arrived from Penrith Panthers in the off-season, is alleged to have entered a property in the eastern suburbs of Sydney without consent of the owners in December last year.

The 23-year-old - a member of South Sydney Rabbitohs' championship-winning team in 2014 - is now due to appear in court on February 17, while the NRL Integrity Unit investigates the incident.

"Manly Warringah Sea Eagles are aware of a minor incident that occurred with Apisai Koroisau in Bondi on 20 December 2015," the statement read.

"The club immediately informed the NRL Integrity Unit of the matter.

"The incident follows some extenuating circumstances in Apisai's personal life.

"The Sea Eagles are providing Apisai with the necessary support during this time.

"The club will make no further comment."

The news comes after the Sea Eagles lost two players to injury at the Auckland Nines over the weekend.

Back-up hooker Jayden Hodges suffered a reported ACL injury, while Jamie Buhrer sustained a broken jaw.
