Huddersfield Giants have suspended second-rower Brett Ferres pending an internal investigation by the club.
A Giants statement read: “Huddersfield Giants have this afternoon (Tuesday) suspended Brett Ferres from the Club pending an internal investigation into conduct away from the Club.
“The Giants will be making no further comment at this stage.”
Ferres has made 74 appearances for the Giants since moving from Castleford Tigers in 2012 and signed a new two-year deal at the John Smith’s Stadium in May this year.
The 29 year-old also scored two tries in match one of England’s three-match Test series against New Zealand, as well as appearing in the subsequent two games.
