The Canterbury Bulldogs rugby league club say they are aware of a sex tape featuring Dylan Napa that was filmed without the new recruit's knowledge.

Bulldogs officials questioned Napa on Friday about the video that went viral on social media.

It is understood the explicit footage was taken without Napa's knowledge and it was filmed four years ago when he was at the Sydney Roosters.

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."

Napa, 26, won the premiership with the Roosters last year and signed a three-year deal with the Bulldogs before Christmas.

The video that has since surfaced 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.

Napa partied all night after the Roosters grand final triumph and arrived 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.

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

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.
