The NRL future of Shaun Kenny-Dowall is up in the air after the Sydney Roosters star was charged with drug possession.

The former New Zealand international and premiership winner was arrested at the Ivy nightclub in Sydney at about 1am on Friday after allegedly being found with 0.46 games of cocaine by police.

The 29-year-old will face Downing Centre Local Court on June 21 and his future at the NRL club is clouded.

The Roosters said they have commenced an investigation and informed the NRL integrity unit.

Kenny-Dowall was dropped from the New Zealand side for Friday's Anzac Test against Australia after starting the year in indifferent form for the Roosters.

He is off contract at the end of the year and appears increasingly unlikely to remain at Bondi Junction beyond 2017 after meeting last month with Newcastle coach Nathan Brown about a potential move to the Hunter.

He could yet be stood down, a move that would open the door for out-of-sorts youngster Latrell Mitchell to return to first grade after he was dropped for their previous two games.

Kenny-Dowall was last year acquitted of domestic violence charges against his former girlfriend Jessica Peris.
