Canterbury Bulldogs halfback Lachlan Lewis is under investigation by the NRL Integrity Unit after allegedly taking property belonging to the club and attempting to sell it on eBay.
Nine's Danny Weidler reports the Bulldogs board is discussing the "serious matter" after the issue was discovered by the club in the past 24 hours.
Lewis is not expected to line up this week.
Lewis is the nephew of rugby league icon Wally Lewis.
He broke into the NRL in 2019 but has struggled to make the Bulldogs' No.7 jersey his own.
It's the second time this week a Bulldogs player has found his name in headlines after teammate Adam Elliott was fined $10,000 by the NRL for his bathroom tryst with NRLW player Millie Boyle.
MORE TO COME.
