Canterbury star Moses Mbye has revealed his side were warned about the NRL's crackdown on touching referees, with only accidental contact avoiding punishment.

Mbye's comments come ahead of St George Illawarra forward Tyson Frizell's date with the judiciary on Tuesday night, where he'll fight a controversial one-game ban from Friday's loss to the Bulldogs.

"We were briefed about it during the week, last week, that it's the rule. You can't touch the referee and he touched the referee," Mbye said on Tuesday.
