NRL star Jack de Belin in cancer battle as he awaits rape trial

Jack de Belin’s legal battles have reportedly coincided with the stood-down NRL star undergoing surgery for testicular cancer.

The shock news was reported by News Corp with the St George Illawarra forward awaiting a retrial in Sydney over an allegation of rape, after a jury in Wollongong was unable to reach a verdict in the initial proceedings.

De Belin has not played a game the past two seasons after he was stood down by the NRL over an allegation stemming from an incident in December 2018.

It’s reported that the 29-year-old found a lump in his testicle earlier in 2020 and had keyhole surgery in September – two months before his trial began in November – which was deemed to be successful.

De Belin’s manager Steve Gillis told News Corp: “It’s a private and personal matter.
