Penrith has moved to shut down a nasty rumour spreading on social media and through text messages, calling in lawyers to tackle the untrue allegations.
The rumours gained more traction over recent days after a Twitter post at the weekend.
“Panthers have been made aware of false allegations circulating on social media alleging inappropriate relationships between a former staff member and current staff members,” the club said in a statement today.
“The allegations are untrue. Panthers have instructed their lawyers and are also retaining cyber investigators to trace the source and sharing of the allegations and to apply the full force of the law including reporting the matter to the Police.
“No further comments will be made until the investigations have concluded.”
