Tigers helping investigations over rape claims

Wests Tigers rugby league officials are working with NSW Police as part of an investigation into a woman's claim that she may have been raped at a Sydney apartment block.

A police spokeswoman says a 26-year-old woman told officers she may have been sexually assaulted on Monday at a unit in Five Dock in Sydney's inner west. The woman at the centre of the investigation did not live at the unit and police will not confirm a report the alleged incident involved first grade NRL players.

Tigers chief executive Steve Noyce says the club has not been informed of any specific allegations against any players. Wests Tigers season ended on Sunday following a 52-18 win over South Sydney at Leichhardt Oval. The police spokeswoman says detectives are investigating the incident.
