Northumbria Police said a 22-year-old woman made a complaint following an incident in the early hours of Tuesday.
The force said the men were being questioned on suspicion of rape and the inquiry was in the "early stages".
The team arrived at the hotel on Monday for a team-building exercise and training.
Huddersfield Giants 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 has fully co-operated with all requests made of us by the police and we are now awaiting further information from them."
