NRL CEO Todd Greenberg phoned Rugby Australia (RA) boss Raelene Castle to warn her off after an unapologetic Michael Cheika attempted to poach young superstar Kalyn Ponga.

AAP understands Greenberg contacted his counterpart on Friday after it emerged Wallabies coach Cheika had a one-on-one conversation with Ponga to enquire about his desire to switch codes at some point in his career.

Cheika on Friday was defiant, saying he was acting in the best interests of the 15-man game, however the episode had been received poorly at Rugby League Headquarters.
