An explosive report in the Sydney Morning Heraldclaims the sex tape was leaked in an attempt to “sabotage” the Blues, and allegedly involves a NSW player.
Speaking as the Blues landed in Brisbane, coach Brad Fittler said: “We’ve been made aware of it and it’s not him.”
NSW assistant coach Greg Alexander told The Daily Telegraph: “For starters it’s not even one of our players.”
Asked if it was an attempt to undermine the Blues’ preparations, Alexander said: “The timing of it. Please. Of course it is.
“The day we arrive in Brisbane this happens. It’s just a stich up.”
The NRL has launched an investigation over the tape, in which the identities of the men is unclear.
The video, which was reportedly filmed several years ago, shows the alleged player in a sex act being described as a “dirty dawg”.
If true, it would be the latest in a number of sex tape scandals which save soured the game.
Last summer, footage emerged of Bulldogs forward Dylan Napa having sex with a woman during his time at the Roosters.
Another video was released which showed the Queensland enforcer performing a sex act on himself while another man shadow boxed next to him.
Owing to the fact the tapes were from several years ago, Napa received a hefty fine from the NRL but was not banned.
Then in March this year, Panther Tyrone May was arrested and charged with two counts of filming and disseminating sex tape footage without consent.
May was stood down under the game’s no-fault stand down policy.
