The NRL integrity unit is aware of a weekend fight involving Manly hooker Manase Fainu – with a man allegedly stabbed in the incident.

Fainu attended a church dance function in Liverpool, western Sydney on Friday evening, when he became entangled in an alleged fight, currently being investigated by the police.

The Sea Eagles reported information about the incident to the NRL integrity unit on Monday, but there is a belief that Fainu need not worry about.

The 21-year-old has recently undergone shoulder surgery and has his arm in a sling, limiting his movement.

Fainu would meet the police on Monday to give his version of the events, after he wanted to do this this weekend.

It is not suggested that he had any criminal involvement.

Fainu is highly appreciated by coach Des Hasler and Manly.

He becomes the first choice of club number 9 in 2020, after Hasler has released Apisai Koroisau from his contract to make Fainu's progress possible.

Fainu is dangerous from the dummy half and is an important part of Manly's attack through the middle with Tom Trbojevic and Daly Cherry-Evans.

However, he was banned from the opening round of the 2019 season by the NRL, after he had declared guilty last September of recording a sexual act without permission.

Incidentally, no conviction was recorded in court after a magistrate had taken into account that Fainu had immediately removed the admission and other factors.
