    Racial abuse has again been directed at an NRL player

    Racial abuse has again been directed at an NRL player

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    The Sydney Morning Herald reports Parramatta wing Blake Ferguson has received a message calling him a "petrol sniffer" among other things, after the Eels win over the Knights.

    The Eels have reported the abuse to the NRL, who are investigating.

    Earlier in the week North Queensland prop Josh McGuire received death threats, while Roosters centre Latrell Mitchell was also the victim of a racial slur.
