NRL: Gallen, Watmough have phones seized

TWO of the NRL's high profile players have reportedly had their phones seized by Australian customs, after returning from games in Auckland.

Anthony Watmough has emerged as the second to have his phone temporarily seized, following revelations Sharks skipper Paul Gallen was also stopped at Sydney airport on Sunday.

The Daily Telegraph says Gallen had his phone confiscated his phone for a period of time and was detained long enough to miss the team bus.

Watmough's phone was examined in similar circumstances when Manly returned from Auckland after their round 13 match against the Warriors.

Both players have received interview notices in relation to ASADA's drugs-in-sport probe.

But government officials will not confirm nor deny whether the phone seizures are connected to the current investigation.
