Fifita hit with $20,000 fine

Cronulla prop Andrew Fifita has been fined $20,000 following an investigation into his on-field support for a convicted criminal during the 2016 NRL season.

Fifita has also been warned that any further material breach of the NRL rules is likely to result in his registration being cancelled.

Fifita played several matches of the season with the letters FKL on his wrist strapping in support of convicted killer Kieran Loveridge.

He was left out of Australia‘s Four Nations squad because of the action.

An NRL spokesman said Fifita had been issued with a breach notice last week and his response has been considered.

“It has been decided to impose a fine of $20,000,” the spokesman said.

“Our competition cannot be used as a platform to promote inappropriate causes such as this.”
