“Josh has sent me the screen shots today of the comments.

“I have forwarded these messages onto David Lockley, the NRL senior intelligence officer.

“David investigated similar messages that (Bulldogs winger) Jayden Okunbor received previously.

“I have been in contact with Josh, and he is OK, but has requested the NRL step in as this person is relentless with messages.”

Addo-Carr has been outspoken about Aboriginal rights in recent years, refusing to sing the national anthem before big games and supporting the Indigenous cause at every opportunity.
