Regardless if 16 is legal or not, it is disgusting and he should be made an example by getting his contract torn up. What a jerk. Going soft on these morons (so many of them really are just stupid) is what has kept them continuing to do these totally unacceptable things.

It's 16 if the two people are of similar age ie. they are both under 18, which Okunbor is not.
Source?

I'm looking at the NSW legislation and it says nothing about "being similar ages".. How could you possibly define that in a court of law? Sounds subjective

Google sexting law changes.

It's only legal if the person receiving the photo is under the age of 18 and even then, it's only legal in certain situations.

If the person is over the age of 18 at the time the photo was received. It's very much illegal.

This is the amendment that brought the age down to 16. Note it only applies to under 18s, who are in a relationship. Adults and/or 3rd parties aren't covered.

91HAA Exception
A person does not commit an offence under section 91H of possessing child
abuse material if:
(a) the possession of the material occurred when the accused person was
under the age of 18 years, and
(b) a reasonable person would consider the possession of the material by
the accused person as acceptable having regard to each of the following
(to the extent relevant):
(i) the nature and content of the material,
(ii) the circumstances in which the material was produced and came
into the possession of the accused person,
(iii) the age, intellectual capacity, vulnerability or other relevant
circumstances of the child depicted in the material,
(iv) the age, intellectual capacity, vulnerability or other relevant
circumstances of the accused person at the time the accused
person first came into possession of the material and at the time
that the accused person’s possession of the material first came to
the attention of a police officer,
(v) the relationship between the accused person and the child
depicted in the material.

I'm not entirely sure what #2 means here, might need a lawyer to decipher that one.

Put simply - is it reasonable for that person to possess the picture/video.

Boyfriend/girlfriend? Yes.
Someone they were hooking up with and voluntarily sent the picture to? Yes.
Boyfriend forwarding it on to his mates? No.
Stranger downloading it from the internet? No.

Oh, so you're just in a mood then. My wife is 36 and can make decisions for herself. If she were a school kid and decided to hook up with a professional athlete, then I would know why she married me, because I, myself, am prime beefcake.
No, I'm just having a hard time believing that any parent would not have an issue with these players crossing the boundry.

So is this 16 year old another girl or was the original claims of 18 wrong?
i'm pretty sure 18 was always an assumption ... they media always reported just that she was above the age of consent and in NSW the age of consent for sex is 16

from what i can gather, in late 2018 they changed the laws for sexting and sharing sexual images raising the age of consent for that activity to 18

To give you some idea of how dumb Cameron Munster is..

He FaceTimed the boys on FoxLeague this morning as he was driving from VIC to QLD, he wasn't wearing a seat belt and was holding his phone, looking at it and interacting with it while driving.

Remarkable.
They are footballers, rather than brain surgeons for a reason.

Was he definitely driving? Looked to me like he was in the passenger seat. I mean don’t get me wrong the bloke is a halfwit but on this case I am sure he was on the left hand side of the car.

Yeah he turned the camera at one point and he was definitely on the left side from memory.

Munster was in the passenger seat and he was wearing a seatbelt.

He moved the camera to show where he was and right there next to him, the person driving the car. Even though he was wearing a dark shirt, you could still see the seatbelt over his shoulder.
