Wests Tigers can confirm that Matthew Lodge has been charged by the NSW Police following an altercation in the early hours of Sunday 11 January 2015.
The Club finds Lodge’s actions unacceptable and is cooperating fully with the NRL Integrity Unit.
Lodge was stood down from training for one week due to a breach of Club protocol and further punishment will be considered once the NRL Integrity Unit has concluded investigating the matter.
Wests Tigers will make no further comment at this time.
As discussed at the time we left the Storm I think we may have dodged a bullet there.
