Raiders star fullback, Jack Wighton, and member of Australia’s Prime Minister’s XIII, has been warned by the Canberra Raiders club of his responsibilities on social media.
This follows a public confrontation with his ex-partner on social media site, Instagram, last week.
A spokesperson of the club confirmed that although the 22 year old did not breach any of the club’s social media guidelines, he has been reminded to refrain from publicising personal matters that could damage his reputation and image.
“We’ve spoken to Jack about his social media use and indicated to him he needs to keep an eye on what he’s doing in that space, because it’s a public forum,” the spokesperson said.
The incident also caught the attention of the NRL, and Wighton is said to have shown genuine remorse for his actions.
The talented raider nicknamed ‘Jumpin’ Jack’ is currently in camp with the rest of the Australian Prime Minister’s XIII team in preparation for the match against Papua New Guinea, in Port Moresby, on Saturday.
