News Corp has obtained 15 pages of WhatsApp messages between Burgess and a woman who claims to have had an affair with him in 2017.
The pair traded flirty banter from November to May of that year, using the pet names “The Big Rig” and “Monkey”.
They shared photographs of themselves, including one which she concluded “THE RIG IS LOOKING S E X Y”, and frequently caught up in Melbourne – at upmarket hotels and a night club.
The explosive messages come after NSW Police and the NRL’s Integrity Unit launched separate investigations into a swathe of misconduct allegations against the 31-year-old.
Here is an edited version of the messages.
