Sims was caught grabbing Mason’s crotch during the second half of the Sea Eagles’ 30-10 win over the Knights at Brookvale Oval and it didn’t take long for the vision to go viral.
Mason did not appear to react to the cheeky grab, but laughed it off post-game.
“Offended? Please. I think it’s hilarious,” Mason is quoted as saying by AAP.
“I hope he doesn’t (get charged for the incident) because me and Korbin are really good mates and I think it was unlucky because of the timing of it all.
“I knew what he was doing. I was talking to him as he was doing it.
“I didn’t even flinch.”
Mason and Sims were teammates at the Knights for three seasons between 2012 and 2014, and Mason said it was just a playful incident between to friends.
“It was quite funny to me. He’s just a good young kid and I would hope that nothing is done because of it,” Mason said.
“It’s just two good teammates from the last three years having a good old … just having a good reacquaintance.”
