Five Bulldogs players have been re-interviewed by detectives seeking to clarify and gather more evidence in the inquiry into the alleged gang rape of a 20-year-old Coffs Harbour woman.
It is understood the players were not expecting the police to arrive on Tuesday.
The detectives had indicated the need for additional interviews following the prepared statements given by players at the Sydney Police Centre earlier this month.
Lead investigator Chief Inspector Jason Breton and two other detectives later informed the club's lawyers on developments.
The investigation into the alleged rape on February 22 is nearing a conclusion.
Detectives said a brief would be handed to the Director of Public Prosecutions later this week.
