According to New Idea, police issued the order after an incident involving Mitchell Hooke - Phoebe Burgess' dad - and Sam, broke out at the family's home in Bowral.
It is believed that Sam was visiting his children, two-year-old Poppy and 10-month-old Billy, who are currently living with the rugby star's estranged wife.
According to New Idea, Sam ended his marriage to former journalist Phoebe late last year and was spotted leaving their marital home with large suitcases on Wednesday, January 3.
Sam is thought to have ended the couple’s relationship just before Christmas, and Phoebe was not seen at the Burgess family Christmas dinner held at Watson’s Bay.
Phoebe is said to have spent Christmas with her parents in their Bowral home.
