Wellington: Australia's National Rugby League (NRL) was yesterday investigating the apparent online leak of a sex tape involving New Zealand Warriors player Konrad Hurrell and a well-known Kiwi actress.
The video reportedly shows Hurrell (22) and actress Teuila Blakely engaged in a sex act while the player is driving a car. Radio New Zealand reported the footage appeared to have been filmed on a phone and circulated on social media.
Blakely confirmed to the New Zealand Herald that she was in the video. "Yeah it was me, but it was a private video and wasn't meant to have been leaked," the 39-year-old told the newspaper.
NRL chief operating officer Jim Doyle said the league was investigating because of the impact the scandal could have on its reputation.
