SYDNEY, June 15 AAP - Police are investigating an alleged incident involving NSW State of Origin winger Blake Ferguson at a Cronulla nightclub on Sunday night.

The Canberra star was out with former Raiders teammate Josh Dugan, who was celebrating his recall to the NSW side for game two next week.

Both players were at the Blues camp in Sydney on Monday morning and were taken up in a lift with a team official for a meeting with coach Laurie Daley.

Daley later emerged to speak to the media and confirm the investigation.

"We have been made aware of an allegation and have been in contact with the NRL's integrity unit," Daley said reading from a prepared statement.

"We will continue to cooperate with the police investigation.

"Josh Dugan was with Blake at the time, but there has been no allegations made against him and we will update you as the matter continues."

NSW Police revealed they have already studied CCTV footage from the club.

"Police from Miranda Local Area Command are investigating an alleged incident at a licensed premises in Cronulla that occurred about 10.30pm last night," a NSW police spokesman said.

"Police have reviewed CCTV from the location and have interviewed a number of people.

"However, investigations into the matter are continuing."

Whatever happened will be investigated and Blake as a man will need to take the consequences if he has done something inappropriate. However, what concerns me is that, even though he is reportedly not involved in the incident, the fact is that Ferguson was out on the drink with one J. Dugan. Since Dugan has been away from Canberra Blake has not been involved in anything even slightly inappropriate. One night back in the company of J. Dugan and he is under suspicion if not in trouble. Does anyone else get the connection?
