Police have closed their investigation into a malicious online campaign against ex-Brisbane Broncos coach Anthony Seibold.

The 46-year-old was the victim of vile and unsubstantiated rumours that went viral on social media in the final weeks of his failed Broncos tenure.

Seibold hired a team of cyber security experts in a bid to track down the individuals responsible.

He subsequently appeared on 60 Minutes and suggested one of the alleged perpetrators was a current NSW Rugby League employee.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, three other individuals, including a former Kangaroos player and ex-first-grade referee were subsequently identified as persons of interest.

However, the Engagement and Hate Crime Unit this week closed their investigation without laying any charges.

Police were powerless to take any action against the alleged offenders due to weak cyberbullying laws currently in effect.

Fairfax Media also reports the NRL is powerless to enforce any penalties because none of the individuals allegedly involved are current employees within the game.
