NORTH Melbourne is investigating an alleged incident involving Kangaroos forward Taylor Garner in Sydney at the weekend.

It has been alleged that Garner was involved in an altercation in a Double Bay hotel that left another man with a broken nose on Saturday night.

On Monday, the Kangaroos confirmed Garner, 25, was the subject of an internal probe.

"The North Melbourne Football Club is aware of an alleged incident involving Taylor Garner which occurred in Sydney on the weekend," the club announced in a statement.

"The club is investigating the matter and will make no further comment at this stage."

Since being selected at No.15 in the 2012 NAB AFL Draft, Garner has played 38 AFL games and just four this season.

He returned for the round 13 clash with Greater Western Sydney and was enjoying the Roos' mid-season bye when the incident is alleged to have taken place.
