UPDATE

Andrew Fifita has been issued an official warning by Cronulla CEO Barry Russell for his comments directed at Daily Telegraph journalist Phil Rothfield.

Days after apologising for an on-field blow-up, Sharks player Andrew Fifita has landed himself in hot water after taking aim at a prominent sports journalist.

The controversial NRL forward appeared on The Halfcast podcast alongside Josh Dugan and UFC fighters Tyson Pedro and Tai Tuivasa when he took a swipe at Daily Telegraph journalist Phil Rothfield.

“I just don’t know how they (football journalists) are all on TV, and they can talk on football,” Fifita says.

“Excuse my French, but (Rothfield) is a complete f***wit.”

Dugan then made remarks about Mr Rothfield, saying “He’s old, weathered, bald-headed”.

“It’s just filled with vile and hatred and foul language,” says Ray Hadley.

“I can tell you now that the club is very very upset with Mr Fifita and Mr Dugan to the extent that I can reveal exclusively they’ve been called to Barry Russell’s (Sharks CEO) office this morning to explain themselves.

“I know that people at the club are saying this is the last thing we need on the eve of the playoffs, two of our key players getting involved in this sort of nonsense.”
