CANBERRA, Dec 5 AAP - Canberra centre Blake Ferguson has been punished by his NRL club after being ejected from a music festival for reportedly spitting at patrons.

The Canberra Times has reported Ferguson spat on fellow music goers at the Foreshore music festival on November 24, before being escorted from the VIP area by security.

A Raiders spokesman said in a brief statement on Wednesday that Ferguson had been dealt with internally for being ejected from the festival, but declined to confirm it was for spitting.

"We're not discussing it any further," the spokesman said.

The father of a witness of the incident wrote to the Canberra newspaper after getting no response from the Raiders.

"While this incident may not be as vile as others involving sports stars over recent years, not only those from the NRL, it is nevertheless a low and disgusting act, and is repugnant to fans, both young and old," the man wrote.

The 22-year-old centre attended the festival with Raiders teammates, however there have been no other reports of misbehaviour.

The incident occurred just two weeks after Canberra began pre-season training for 2013.

The 2010 Indigenous All-Stars representative previously found himself in trouble with the Raiders' administration in May when he showed up to training still under the influence of alcohol.
