Queensland Police say an assault allegation against NRL player Ben Te'o has been formally withdrawn.
Earlier today, the Nine Network published a preview of an interview in which a woman claimed she was punched in the face by Te'o in the presence of former Brisbane Broncos team-mates Corey Norman and Darius Boyd.
However, Te'o has vehemently denied the accusations, saying he found himself in unfortunate circumstances and that he acted appropriately.
South Sydney chief Shane Richardson backed his player's denial, saying he would not be stood down.
