Canterbury players Jayden Okunbor and Corey Harawira-Naera have been deregistered by the NRL after it was revealed the pair had sex with teenage schoolgirls on a team trip to Port Macquarie in February.

The behaviour of the pair was labelled “inexcusable” in statements released by the NRL and the Bulldogs on Wednesday afternoon, with the club saying they supported the game’s decision.

“The conduct of the two players, on the eve of our final trial match, demonstrated an unacceptable lack of respect for their teammates, their coach and club officials, our hosts in Port Macquarie and fans of the game everywhere,” the Bulldogs’ statement read.
