Api Koroisau Covid bubble breach: Lover was never contacted by NRL before ...

The woman at the centre of the Api Koroisau controversy was never contacted by the NRL officials to provide a statement about sneaking into State of Origin camp and breaching biosecurity protocols on two occasions.

Koroisau was handed a two match suspension and ordered to pay $35,000 after admitting he put the entire NRL competition at risk when he sneaked a woman he met online into his room.  

But the woman claims the punishment was not severe enough given Koroisau breached the game's Covid bubble and proceeded to cover it up for three weeks, despite watching an opposition player get stood down over an almost identical offence. 

'There was all the public shame... but two weeks is nothing,' she said.   

The woman, who does not want to be identified, was surprised she was never contacted by integrity unit officials to provide a statement about the details of the rendezvous inside the team hotel.

'I'm shocked by the NRL just going off Api's word... Trusting a guy who brought me into camp twice and a planned third time,' she said.  

The woman who accused Koroisau of breaching quarantine said she met the footballer on Instagram in early June, and their communication quickly moved to Snapchat

Koroisau's wife Amy congratulated him on Instagram for making his long-awaited debut in game three after being 18th man for the first two matches

The woman claims she was smuggled into the Blues hotel on June 20 in Homebush and on June 27 - the day of State of Origin 2 - in Brisbane.

She eventually admitted the affair to Koroisau's wife, who was shattered when she heard of the allegations. 

Koroisau's punishment aligns with what Jai Arrow received for a similar indiscretion, but the woman involved says she doesn't think two games on the sideline 'teaches these guys a lesson'. 

Amy and the couple's two children arrived at the Gold Coast on Wednesday to join Koroisau in the Queensland NRL hub and are now completing their mandatory 14-day quarantine stint

While she doubts the punishment will be a deterrent, the woman said she hopes there will be no further breaches - either of the bubble or of trust within a relationship.

The woman claims she was charmed by Koroisau and quickly developed feelings for him before he suddenly deleted his Snapchat account and told her not to contact him on Instagram in case his wife saw the messages.

Her opinion on the matter echoes that made by others after Daily Mail Australia exposed the breach, with Ray Hadley warning 'any penalty imposed would not be harsh enough'.  

The 2GB broadcaster earlier told his audience the code had to come down hard on Koroisau if he was found to have breached the biosecurity bubble. 

'The NRL has a very big job to do here,' Hadley said on Friday morning. 'Whatever they do with the bloke probably won't be enough.

'He's put the entire game at risk and they should deal with him appropriately. I don't want to see a slap on the wrist.'

Koroisau issued a grovelling apology last Friday night while his wife Amy admitted she had been left 'immensely hurt' by the revelations.

'I made the choice to do the wrong thing and my actions have brought shame and embarrassment to many people, especially my wife and children. I will be forever sorry,' the footy player said.

He apologised to the fans for putting the game at risk and to his wife Amy and two daughters for the 'pain caused through selfish, thoughtless actions'. 

'I'm determined to become a better partner, father and protector, and hopefully rebuild trust, and earn back your love and our family,' he said.  

Amy has vowed to stand by her man, releasing a statement at the same time which said: 'Api is a great dad and although this has hurt me immensely I have no doubt he will put the necessary strategies in place to learn from this and better who he is.' 

Koroisau's wife of four years allegedly told the other woman that she would leave him after learning of the affair, but it appears she has since flown to the Sunshine Coast to join the Penrith Panthers' Covid bubble with their two young daughters

Api Koroisau has been fined $35,000 and suspended for two games after Daily Mail Australia exclusively revealed that he allegedly put the entire NRL competition at risk by smuggling a woman he met on Instagram into the Blues hotel on two occasions. He is pictured with his wife Amy 

The two-game suspension started immediately, meaning the 28-year-old missed Saturday night's game against the Brisbane Broncos and will miss the grand final grudge rematch against Melbourne Storm this Saturday.

NRL officials stood by the punishment on Friday, despite fans and critics alike labelling it as 'weak'. 

In a statement, the league said the penalty was imposed based on the fact that the breach took place prior to more recent incidents involving Arrow and a dozen players from St George Illawarra.
