Napa drama, NRL investigating Roosters players involvement.
Today, 01:54 AM
The Roosters are set to become the new focus of the Dylan Napa sex tapes scandal with the NRL to widen their investigation to include both current and former players.
We have been told the NRL have finished interviewing Napa and will now turn their attention to the other players involved in the now infamous WhatsApp chat group.
Phones could be seized as part of the investigation.
Bulldogs recruit Napa is facing punishment over a series of lewd tapes that have been leaked on social media.
Napa confirmed to the NRL that the videos were filmed during his five-year stint with the Roosters and were posted on a WhatsApp chat group used exclusively by members of his former club.
Both current and former Roosters players could face punishment with the NRL now set to investigate the entire chat group.
Napa will not learn his fate until the investigation is concluded.
Napa and his lawyers are understood to have fully co-operated with the NRL during a series of interviews.
The prospect of a wide-ranging investigation into chat groups has already prompted one club to shut down a WhatsApp chat group.
The club also issued guidelines for using the social media application and warned of punishment for inappropriate posts.
It is understood Napa’s new club, the Bulldogs, may seek compensation should the NRL decide to suspend Napa.

“Phones could be seized as part of the investigation” Newspaper headline this week: ROOSTERS CLUB RECEIVE DELIVERY OF 20 NEW MOBILE PHONES AFTER UNFORTUNATE MASS-LOSS OF PLAYER PHONES.
What a disgrace, this is the NRL doing its perfected technique of not wanting to find evidence of wrongdoing with certain clubs, making it public knowledge what their plans are before their “investigation”. Fair dinkum you couldnt make this stuff up. Unbelievable.
