Reynolds and Brooks came to the club to make it aware of a situation they found themselves in on Saturday night.

The two players were at an Inner West venue with a larger group throughout the evening. During the night NSW Police conducted a routine search of the venue.

NSW Police searched the entire group at the venue inclusive of Reynolds and Brooks and recorded the events.

Both players remained at the venue once Police left. Neither player has had any further contact with NSW Police since the event.

The club has contacted the NRL Integrity Unit regarding the matter to inform them.

So they just happened to be there and were found clean... That's not a story. Nothing to see here.

If they were at a Venue that was raided sounds like a media beat up Fake News being last Saturday night any substance to it would have heard all about it before this

Unless they've been charged with possession, then its a big fat nothing story. Good WT players and management are right on it early before the rumours go into overdrive.

On the front foot, spelling out the situation before Rothfilth and his hacks get stuck in.

Well done by the front office.

Nothing story by that statement. Good that the club came out with a statement early.

Hopefully nothing in it, but i'm putting it out there anyway.........

any wrong doing could free up a heap of salary cap space for Nathan Cleary.

Just for clarity - I'd prefer to keep Luke over paying a squillion bucks for Cleary and really hope there is nothing in this story.

Whats the world coming to when you can't even enjoy a private strip show in peace.

Police Officers probably thought Brooks was a 13 year old and wanted to investigate him for possessing a fake ID.

Best thing about this story is that our halves are out together bonding! Hopefully Brooks is no longer socialising with slime

Haha, that's what I thought when I saw the 7 news tweet.

The official Tigers release state they were at an "inner west establishment."

I thought that was quite a fancy way to refer to the Illinois.

Massively deceptive headline, jeez journalism is getting bad these days.

Should have said "Tigers plays were proximal to drug raids carried out at a hotel, but were not charged".

It's like me saying "ink and Geo involved in fare-avoidance raids by transit police" when they were sitting politely in the train carriage when the transit cops happened to come through checking Opal cards. Just replace "opal cards" with "fake boobs".

Also however, if you want to keep a clean profile, Illinois not exactly the place to be.
