“I know there were some allegations made to police at Caloundra,” Mr Trodden added.

“And I know that the club and a couple of the players co-operated with police in relation to those allegations.”

At this stage, Police and authorities won’t release details of who has been interviewed.

“We are looking into an alleged rape up at Caloundra,” authorities confirmed.

As yet no charges have been laid.

National Rugby League boss David Gallop, said Mr Trodden had told him about the situation at hand.

“The NRL will continue to monitor developments closely. They’re technically not NRL players but obviously we still take a big interest.

“It’s really now a matter for the police at this stage.”

Mr Trodden confirmed the Balmain Tigers officials would also do their own investigations into the alleged incident.

The Balmain side was in Queensland taking part in the pre-game at Stockland Stadium, where the Broncos and Storm eventually played their match in front of 8,000 spectators.
