Andrew and David Fifita have reportedly met with Newcastle Knights coach Nathan Brown.

Triple M listener Adam Martin sent us a photo his wife took of the Sharks premiership winning prop and his brother having dinner with Nathan Brown and their management.

“Saw the Fifita brothers out for dinner wth Nathan Brown and management,” Robert told Triple M.

While it’s too early to say if Knights fans should get excited, the acquisition of this pair would be a massive boost to the struggling club.

Newcastle has been on a signing spree of late, having signed Manly’s Jamie Buhrer and premiership-winning Cowboys hooker Rory Kostjasyn for their 2017 squad.

Earlier On Triple M

An unrepentant Andrew Fifita claims he had talks with Cronulla officials and his management about a move out of the NRL, amid fears one more indiscretion could mean the end of his rugby league career.

The Sharks premiership winning prop was banned from the Australian squad for the Four Nations due to his support for convicted killer Kieran Loveridge, who was a childhood friend.

In an emotional and at times confusing interview on Sky News, Fifita said he was being forced out of the NRL. He also continued to deny he had done anything wrong in wearing a note of support for Loveridge on his strapping in several NRL games this season.

"I don't know if my contract is going to be ripped up tomorrow. I don't know if my contract is going to be ripped up in six months," Fifita said.

"I feel like I am on my last chance with the NRL. I know they they all know that.

"I am thinking the worst at the moment. I have one more mess up and I am out, my contract is up.

"So I have already approached my management team and I have had talks with the (Sharks) CEO (Lyall Gorman) about negotiating elsewhere in different codes."

In August Fifita was issued a police warning for consorting with criminals. The matter is under investigation by the NRL's integrity unit.
