  • Ex-Australian skipper sent Renee Ferguson ‘unsolicited’ genital pic, court hears
  • Tim Paine is named in court documents alleging she was victimised at work 
  • He allegedly sent sexts and photo before Brisbane Ashes test in November 2017 
  • The former Cricket Tasmania employee filed a harassment claim in Federal Court


The woman at the centre of the sexting scandal which cost Aussie captain Tim Paine his career claims she did not consent to receiving photos of his genitalia, a court has heard.

Renee Ferguson has filed a workplace sexual harassment claim against Cricket Tasmania in which she alleges ‘relentless and systemic’ harassment in her time as a receptionist in 2017.

Court documents say Ms Ferguson struggled with suicidal thoughts while demeaning comments and messages allegedly came from at least three four CT employees.

Ms Ferguson, who was allegedly urged to ‘move forward’ after complaining about the continued sexual comments, wants $100,000 in compensation and an apology from CT for her hurt and humiliation.

Paine resigned as captain of the Australian cricket team in November 2021 and made an emotional public apology after a series of explicit texts between him and Ms Ferguson went viral. 

In one he allegedly wrote: ‘Will you want to taste my d**?? F**k me, I’m seriously h***.’

Days after news of the scandal broke, Paine claimed an earlier internal investigation had exonerated him and cleared him of a breach of the Cricket Australia code of conduct. 

He also called the texts a ‘private conversation’ and referred to the texts as ‘flirtatious’.

‘One text was sent that was a little open-ended, and it became a flirtatious exchange that should never have,’ Paine said.

But court documents reveal Ms Ferguson tried to steer the text conversation away from a sexual nature and that when Paine sent the explicit photo she was allegedly ‘taken aback’ and offended.

Further details of comments allegedly received by Ms Ferguson were also detailed in court documents.

An unnamed senior CT manager allegedly humiliated her with an invitation to colleagues to view her naked.

‘Hey everyone, [Ferguson] will be naked in my apartment at 11 today. Get your binoculars out and I will open the curtains,’ the man allegedly said. 

When she complained about persistent sexual comments to a manager they were allegedly acknowledged as true, but it’s claimed she was told to ‘move forward’.

Paine, his brother-in-law Shannon Tubb, and CT’s ex general manager of venue operations, Stephen McMullen, were all named in the court documents.

Tubb, who was CT’s high performance manager at the time, texted her ‘I want to put my c*** between your tits.

‘Oh, you need two bananas, do you?’ Cricket Tasmania’s then general manager of venue operations Stephen McMullen allegedly said to Ferguson.

Mr McMullen is also alleged to have asked if Ms Ferguson had ever previously engaged in a threesome.

An intermediary between the woman and Cricket Tasmania claimed Ms Ferguson had not intended for the matter to go public.

Sean Mulcahy confirmed Ms Ferguson reached out to CT discreetly mid-2018 to first demand an apology, then wanted an apology and money to cover her legal fees – amounting to $40,000 at the time.
