The NRL's integrity board is investigating Warriors centre Konrad Hurrell over a video posted on social media of him allegedly involved in a sex act with a woman in a car.

The video, which appeared to have been filmed on a phone, was uploaded and had been circulated on Instagram.

It was not clear whether Hurrell, 22, uploaded the video himself but it appeared it was originally circulated on the app Snapchat, which deleted photos and videos after a set period of time as determined by the user. 

The New Zealand Herald reported that Shortland Street actress Teuila Blakely confirmed she was the woman involved.

TVNZ declined to comment, and Blakely could not be reached directly for comment.

Blakely, 39, plays nurse Vasa Levi in Shortland Street. She has also appeared in Sione's Wedding, Outrageous Fortune, This Is Not My Life, and Sione's 2: Unfinished Business.

NRL chief operating officer Jim Doyle confirmed Hurrell was being investigated at a launch for the upcoming Women in League round. 

"All I am going to say is that I am aware of it," Doyle said.

"Driving here to this function we were made aware that there is something there, but we are following up on it now. We don't have any other knowledge."

Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah said: "We have heard social media reports and are investigating. We can't say anything more until we have more facts".

With the NRL trying to promote Women in League, Doyle admitted the timing of the Hurrell incident wasn't great. 

"We have been made aware of something, we are not sure of what it is yet but we are following it up," Doyle said.
