    Six rugby league players arrested after a woman said she was raped at a Newcastle hotel have been bailed.

    The men, from the Huddersfield Giants Super League squad, were staying at the Gosforth Marriott Hotel as part of a pre-season tour.

    Northumbria Police said a 22-year-old woman made a complaint following an incident in the early hours of Tuesday.

    They were questioned on suspicion of rape and later released on bail pending further inquiries.

    The Giants had arrived at the hotel on Monday for a team-building exercise and training.

    Club managing director Richard Thewlis said there would be an internal inquiry into the allegation.

    In a statement on the club's website, he said: "The club appreciate that the police have a duty to thoroughly investigate all allegations of this nature.

    "We will assist them in any way requested.

    "The police will now gather the facts and reach their conclusions."
