Canberra Raiders star Josh Dugan faces possible sanctions after admitting to management on Monday that he had breached the club's strict alcohol policy for injured players.

A Raiders official said on Monday night that Dugan and team-mate Blake Ferguson had confirmed to the the club they had been drinking.

Dugan took to Twitter to apologise, hinting at deeper problems.

Pictures appeared on Dugan's Instagram account on Monday showing the pair reclining on a roof holding bottles.

The images emerged after police attended a home in Nicholls on Monday morning following a noise complaint. Neighbours reported seeing Dugan, Ferguson and others on the roof of a house.

Fullback Dugan sustained a rib cartilage injury in Canberra's 32-10 opening-round loss to the Panthers in Penrith on Sunday. Under the club's policy, injured players are prohibited from drinking alcohol during their recovery.

Fairfax Media was told on Monday night that Raiders officials, senior players and board members would meet on Tuesday to discuss how to handle the matter.

The official said the club was also unhappy that Ferguson had been drinking after such a big loss to start the season.

It is understood several senior Raiders players were furious after viewing the pictures and phoned officials to express their anger. Raiders chief executive Don Furner did not return phone calls. Dugan could not be contacted.

ACT Policing confirmed that a noise complaint had been received in Nicholls.

Dugan was stood down from the Canberra side in May last year for drinking while injured. Ferguson was given the same punishment for turning up to a training session still affected by alcohol.

In December the Raiders fined Ferguson $5000 and ordered him to complete community service after allegedly spitting on patrons at Canberra's Foreshore Music Festival.

After he was issued his suspension last year, Dugan told Fairfax Media he had learned a valuable lesson.

''Being injured is bad, but to know you let the team down by stuffing up was even worse,'' he said in September. ''I can pretty much say that will never happen again.

''You take things for granted being the number one or in Fergo's case the starting winger week-in and week out … there were rules in place and it's simple - we broke the rules and we paid the punishment.

''I think it helped both of us, I think it matured us on and off the field and woke us up a bit to what we had in front of us.''

Ferguson also expressed his remorse in July.

''That incident really shocked me and didn't sit well with the coaches and also myself, because I know I'm better than that,'' he said.

''It was a rookie error you would say, immature of me and not thinking about the team.

''Myself and Josh [Dugan] are young but we've got a fair bit of experience in the top grade, all the young kids coming through look up to us and we're the sounding boards for them. There's a time and place to do things, and that wasn't the time and place.''
