SYDNEY, July 23 AAP - The NRL has reinstated the registration of NSW State of Origin and Canberra star Blake Ferguson.

Ferguson was suspended last month after being charged with indecent assault on a woman at a Sydney bar, 24 hours before linking up with the NSW Origin squad for game two. He has pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The NRL suspended Ferguson's registration because of repeated behavioural issues involving the use of alcohol.

Ferguson has since participated in an intensive four-week program of rehabilitation which including counseling on the use of alcohol.

"This has been a thorough and detailed process," NRL chief operating officer Jim Doyle said.

"It has involved the Integrity Unit, the Welfare and Education team and the Canberra club.

"Issues like these are not solved overnight but Blake and the club have committed to a number of steps going forward and we will continue to work with them."
