Today Parramatta Eels player Liam Foran appeared before Gosford Local Court in relation to a common assault charge and an apprehended violence order.
The case has been adjourned to a later date and an interim AVO remains in place.
The NRL Integrity Unit was informed of the incident earlier in January, and the club has undertaken its own internal investigation.
The club is supporting Liam through this difficult time.
As this is an ongoing legal matter, neither Liam nor the club are in a position to make any further comment at this time.
