Gary Harris smiling for the camera© Sporting News Manly Sea Eagles rookie Manase Fainu has reportedly been charged by police for allegedly filming a sex act without consent.

As first reported by News Corp's Dean Ritchie, police will allege the 19-year-old posted the consensual act on social media before deleting it after the woman involved reported the post to the authorities.

Fainu appeared in court in May on the charge of ‘intentionally recorded an intimate image without consent’ and was granted bail after declining to enter a plea.

He is due to appear in Fairfield Local Court on August 7.

Despite Fainu’s impending court appearance, the Sea Eagles handed the teenager his NRL debut against the Penrith Panthers last Saturday.

The NRL Integrity Unit is reportedly monitoring the matter.

Manly are free to select Fainu for next Saturday’s clash against Melbourne Storm.

There is a precedent for players being allowed to play NRL matches while facing charges.

Canberra Raiders full-back Jack Wighton was charged with multiple offences stemming from an incident outside a Canberra nightclub in February but was cleared to play for the Green Machine.

He was stood down by the club indefinitely last month after pleading guilty to three counts in a Canberra court.
