Cronulla enforcer Andrew Fifita has reportedly been issued a consorting notice by police on Wednesday.

Fairfax Media are reporting that police from the gang squad Strikeforce Raptor have issued a consorting warning to a 27-year-old

"NRL player under section 93x of the Crimes Act 1900," police said in a statement obtained by Fairfax Media.

In a possible blow to the Sharks ahead of their massive minor premiership clash with Melbourne this weekend, the forward isn't the first player issued with a warning from NSW police for consorting with convicted criminals.

Corey Norman, Junior Paulo and James Segeyaro were also in hot water after being photographed having dinner with bikies and accused criminals.
