Bulldogs officials questioned Napa on Friday about the video, which has gone viral on social media.

It is understood the film was taken around four years ago when Napa was still at the Sydney Roosters.

The video shows a much younger Napa, with a fuller head of red hair, less bulk and no tattoos on the backs of his legs. The vision is filmed from a nearby bed.

Canterbury said in a statement: "The club has today been made aware of alleged images surfacing on social media of a current player taken several years ago.

"The club has informed the NRL integrity unit of the matter. The club is not in a position to comment further at this time.''

The NRL would only confirm it had been made aware of the Napa video.

Napa won a premiership with the Roosters last year and signed a three-year deal with the Bulldogs before Christmas.

After the Roosters grand final triumph, he partied hard all night, arriving at the fan day still kitted out in his football shorts and playing boots.

Two years ago the powerhouse prop was knocked unconscious by a fire poker during a wild party at a luxurious home in Palm Beach.

Napa, 26, was the high-profile replacement for out-going Bulldog David Klemmer. He was happy at the Roosters but ultimately made the decision to head to Belmore, even cutting short an end-of-season premiership trip to the US with his Roosters mates so he could link with his new employer.

The Bulldogs have worked hard to move on from the fallout from their Mad Monday celebrations, and while standing by Napa, were privately frustrated the latest incident happened when the front-rower was not even at Belmore.

Always up for a good time, Napa told the Herald last season about when he first moved to Sydney from Brisbane after signing with the Roosters as an 18-year-old and living just ''20 metres from the Beach Road Hotel''.

"I moved down when I was 18, and I had noooooo idea about all this fun,'' Napa said. "There were a lot of bars and a lot of girls.

"The Beach Road Hotel is still my local. When I first came down, I went there a few more nights than I do now. I've definitely cut back on the Beach Road sessions.

"I had my moments, but I'm lucky my family have been so supportive and I'm surrounded by a bunch of good guys. ''
