Cronulla Sharks prop Andrew Fifita is set to sue the Bulldogs over a failed contract agreement that was worth a reported $3.2 million, according to Fairfax Media. 

After both parties failed to settle the claims out of court, Fifita's legal team will be attempting to gain the full amount of the contract.

Fifita signed a four-year deal with the club in 2014, however, the club backflipped on the deal only days later claiming both parties had “not been able to agree on the final terms of his NRL playing contract’’.

Fifita's layer Ian Denham told Fairfax Media, what was stipulated in the contract didn't reflect the original agreement. 

"Then they sent us a contract which didn't reflect the document they signed," Denham said.

"They asked his (Fifita's) agent Ben Johnston to rip up the document and said they'd make things up to us."

The Bulldogs are also set for a courtroom battle with former coach Des Hasler, under similar contract circumstances.
