Okunbor and Harawira-Naera were rejected by the NRL for taking schoolgirls to the team hotel for sex last month while at the camp in Port Macquarie, breaking the code of conduct for the game.

The duo expects heavy penalties, including deregistration, and will not train with the team pending their fate.

Their actions are not subject to criminal investigation.

Although he does not approve of their behavior, Bulldogs Captain Jackson said he is concerned about the wellbeing of Okunbor and Harawira-Naera regardless of the punishment.

“I’ll say those two guys (what they did) don’t reflect us as a club, it doesn’t reflect our values ​​and it doesn’t reflect the character of those guys either,” he said.

“We have to make sure we’re careful here because it’s young guys who made a really bad decision, that’s not to say they’re bad people, and we have to make sure that their well-being and their mental condition.

“We have to stand behind that.”

The scandal has cost the club a major sponsorship deal with Rashays, believed to be worth $ 2 million.

The Bulldogs now have no sponsor in the front of the second round.

Although disappointed, Tolman echoed Jackson’s concerns, saying that while he has an opinion about the punishment the couple should take, he will not publicly express it.

“It’s a very difficult situation, they’ve clearly done the wrong thing and left the team and the club and everyone else involved, the fans, the members, but by saying that, they’re really good people,” he said.

“For me, this is far from the character of what they both bring to this club.

“What is more important to me is to make sure their well-being is in order.

“There will be a few hard calls and they need to know what they did wrong, and not well, but by saying it’s still human, we need to make sure we are there to support them this time. ‘

It’s frustrating that this happens exactly in the NRL season, but it is.

“I have my opinion, I don’t want to say it, I don’t want to get caught up in that comment right now.”
