Rugby Australia say they are investigating reports Wallabies hooker Tolu Latu has been charged with drink driving.
Sydney's Daily Telegraph reported the 26-year-old was found sleeping in his vehicle in the early hours of Thursday morning in the east of the city.
Rugby Australia have issued a statement, reading: "Rugby Australia and New South Wales Rugby Union have been made aware today by the Daily Telegraph of an incident involving Wallabies and Waratahs hooker Tolu Latu.
"Rugby Australia's Integrity Unit is working with the New South Wales Rugby Union to ascertain all of the facts."
Tongan-born Latu has 12 caps for the Wallabies, the latest of which came in November 2018 against England at Twickenham.
He came off the bench as a replacement for the Waratahs in their Super Rugby match against the Reds on Saturday.
The allegations against Latu come in the same week that his Waratahs and Wallabies team-mate Israel Folau was sacked over anti-LGBT social media posts.
