One of the men involved in the scuffle was stabbed, but sources told it Sydney Morning Herald that Fainu was not responsible.
It is not suggested that Fainu had any involvement.
& # 39; Manly Warringah Sea Eagles are aware of an incident with Manase Fainu during the weekend & # 39 ;, said the NRL club in a statement.
& # 39; The club has spoken with its management and informed the NRL integrity unit. The club follows the situation pending further investigation. & # 39;
At the time of the incident, the arm of the Sea Eagles hooker was sitting in a sling of a shoulder injury on the field.

Fainu tried to talk to the police during the weekend, but officers were not available that day.
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.
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.
