There was no breach of the game’s biosecurity rules as players are allowed to attend approved venues.

It is not the first time the 26-year-old has had off-field issues with alcohol.

Earlier this year Elliott had sought professional help for his alcohol problems.

In a statement, the Bulldogs said they had been made aware of “an incident” involving Elliott.

“The Club are currently working with the NRL Integrity Unit regarding the matter.

“As a result the Bulldogs have stood Elliott down from the final two matches of the season, until that process has been completed.

“The Club is not in a position to comment further at this stage.”
