In Round 3 of the 2019 NRL season, Okunbor made his NRL debut for the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs against the Wests Tigers, playing on the wing and having a solid match registering 214 meters in Canterbury’s 22-8 win at Campbelltown Stadium. In the next match in Round 4 against the Melbourne Storm, Okunbor had a powerhouse performance, scoring his first NRL career try, and ran for a whopping 290 meters even busting through 2 tackles from Storm captain Cameron Smith during Canterbury’s unlucky 18-16 loss at AAMI Park. On 29 April 2019, Okunbor was rewarded with a 2-year extension with Canterbury to the end of the 2021 season.
On 21 May, Okunbor was ruled out for 6 weeks after suffering a toe ligament injury in Canterbury’s Round 10 victory over the Gold Coast where Okunbor had scored 2 tries.
Okunbor made a total of 10 appearances for Canterbury in the 2019 NRL season as the club finished 12th on the table. At one stage, Canterbury-Bankstown found themselves sitting last on the table and in real danger of finishing with the wooden spoon. However, for the third straight season, Canterbury achieved four upset victories in a row over Penrith, the Wests Tigers, South Sydney and Parramatta who were all competing for a place in the finals series and were higher on the table. The pay was credited with the late-season revival as the side focused heavily on defense.
On 10 March 2020, Okunbor was stood down by Canterbury just two days before the start of the 2020 NRL season after it was alleged he met two girls during a school visit on a pre-season trip to Port Macquarie earlier in March along with teammate Corey Harawira-Naerea, whilst a sexual encounter was alleged to occur, the schoolgirls were of the age of consent and there was no criminal investigation pending. Both players were asked to “show cause” why the NRL should not cancel or suspend their registrations as players.
On 11 March 2020, it was revealed that Okunbor had used Instagram to contact one of the schoolgirls. In a leaked message obtained through Fox Sports, Okunbor said to the schoolgirl “Yeah had to have a good look, what are we doing tonight?, Okay, okay, we’re you at the school today?”. It was also revealed one of the two players sanctioned had sexual intercourse with a teacher from another school during the same pre-season trip.
On the same day, it was revealed that because of the two players’ actions, new major sponsor Rashays had canceled their $2 million sponsorship with the club. Rashays had signed on to become Canterbury’s front of shirt sponsor. Rashays owner Rami Ykmour released a statement saying “It’s a shame two players could wreck it for everyone, It’s disgusting. It’s repulsive, to be honest. That’s something else. If they sack them, I would stand by the club and the NRL’s decision”.
Jayden Okunbor Instagram Messages
Messages between Okunbor and one of the girls were leaked on Wednesday.
The 23-year-old asked one of the girls ‘what are we doing tonight?’ in an Instagram message after meeting her earlier that day.
The 17-year-old asked him if he was ‘having a good stalk’, after earlier messages.
‘Yeah had to have a good look, what are we doing tonight?’ the Canterbury-Bankstown winger replied.
The girl cheekily replied ‘you’ followed by a winking face, to which Okunbor responded ‘okay, okay’ and asked if she was at the school that day.
She sent him a photo of her posing with him with the caption ‘sure was’, and Okunbor replied ‘okay’ with three loved-up emojis.
The girl bragged about going to the player’s hotel on her since-deleted Instagram account.
‘*Gets invited to go back to bulldogs hotel room* fine if i must,’ she wrote.
One of her friends commented: ‘Lucky b***h.’
The schoolgirls were not underage and there is no suggestion Harawira-Naera or Okunbor did anything illegal.
The 17-year-olds were willing participants and over the age of consent, but NRL players are banned from bringing women to their hotel rooms.
Police are not looking into the incident and don’t believe a crime was committed. Neither the girls nor their parents have made a complaint.
The girls’ parents are aware of the incident, which is understood to have been first revealed when they discussed it with friends in a messaging app group chat.
