It seems there's no end to alcolohol-related problems in the National Rugby League.

The latest offender, the 21 year old Gold Coast Titans speedster Ben Jeffery has been fined $750 and disqualified from driving for five months after returning a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit last December.

Jeffery's expected to face further punishment from his club.

And the Sydney Roosters coach, Brad Fittler is fuming after two of his forwards, Willie Mason and Nate Myles, admitted breaking the club's alcohol rules by drinking at their homes last Sunday.

Mason and Myles have been stood down for a week.

And the Canterbury Bulldogs says they are investigating an alleged incident involving some of their players at a Sydney leagues' club on Saturday night.
