The NRL is set to investigate after a Warriors player was caught allegedly using a homophobic slur in the 25-24 win over the North Queensland Cowboys on Friday night.

While the identity of the player is not known at this stage, the NRL is expected to look into the incident.

In it, the player appeared to call Cowboys winger Kyle Feldt a ‘f****t’ while he laid on the ground with an injury.

“Get up Kyle you f****t,” the player allegedly said.

Back in 2014, then Wests Tigers playmaker Mitchell Moses was banned for two games for a homophobic slur at Canberra Raiders lock Luke Bateman.

Moses was playing in the New South Wales Under-20s side at the time and the incident was investigated by the NRL match review committee.

The match review committee can charge players with contrary conduct, which is where this alleged incident would come under should it be proven in the NRL’s investigation.

A grade one contrary conduct charge carries a $1000 with an early plea if it is the first offence, while a grade two and three charge is a one and two-match ban respectively.
