Cronulla prop Andrew Fifita is reportedly considering a switch to rugby union.

An Australian Rugby Union spokeswoman confirmed to The Daily Telegraph that Fifita met Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzie last weekend, although she could not say whether things would move beyond that meeting.

The newspaper reported that the 24-year-old has also recently changed management, and is now working with Sutherland Shire accountant Greg Willett, who also manages McKenzie.

Willett also attended the weekend meeting, but would not detail what was said.

Fifita has had a remarkable rise this year, making his NSW Origin debut in June and then featuring in the Kangaroos' successful World Cup campaign.
