THE NRL integrity unit will speak to Nowra-born Cody Walker on Monday after the South Sydney Rabbitohs star told police he is being blackmailed.
In recent days, 30-year-old five-eighth has informed police he is being blackmailed by a person who says he has video footage of the Souths star kicking a man in a fight in October last year.
The person behind the blackmail has demanded $20,000 or the vision will be released to the media.
The star playmaker, who played one game of State of Origin for NSW in 2019, has subsequently told Souths of the ordeal and the club informed the NRL integrity unit on Sunday.
An NRL spokesperson confirmed the integrity unit is aware of the incident, while staff from the club are expected to speak to 98-game veteran.
The Rabbitohs confirmed they were aware of the investigation via a club statement.
"The South Sydney Rabbitohs are aware of an incident involving player Cody Walker which took place in northern New South Wales in October 2019," the statement read.
"The NRL's integrity unit have been informed.
"At no stage has Cody Walker been the subject of a police enquiry in relation to this incident.
"The Rabbitohs will be making no further comment on this matter at this stage as it is part of an ongoing police enquiry instigated by Cody Walker himself."
