Investigation into Broncos players continuing

6:23 am on 7 October 2008

Queensland Police say an investigation into an alleged sexual assault involving three Brisbane Broncos rugby league players is continuing and the case has not been referred to the Director of Public Prosecutions at this stage.

Karmichael Hunt, Sam Thaiday and Darius Boyd were questioned by police last month over an alleged incident involving a 24-year-old woman in a Brisbane nightclub toilet.

Police Commissioner Bob Atkinson has indicated the matter may be sent to the DPP for an independent assessment once police have finished their enquiries.

A police spokesman says that has not happened as yet.
