‘Tarryn Thomas has been charged with a single count of threatening to distribute an intimate image,’ the statement said.

‘The club has informed the AFL’s Integrity Unit and the AFLPA on both matters and the club will continue to work with Thomas regarding behavioural expectations.’

The club said it would not comment further on Thomas, who is under contract with North until the end of 2024.

The 22-year-old Thomas played only 10 AFL games for the Kangaroos last season and was dropped from the senior side in June for not meeting training standards.

Thomas has played 57 games for the Roos since being selected with pick eight at the 2018 national draft.
