During his NRL days David Fifita always played second fiddle to his brother Andrew Fifita. Wakefield signed up a second stringer as their main forward weapon.

You should be congratulating the Wakefield fans, not me for finally sussing him out.

Must have missed that, which user name did you use.

And your point is what exactly?

That David Fifita is not as potent a weapon as Wakefield coaching and administration had thought when they signed him.

I'm sure that several clubs would happily accommodate him, given half the chance.
I for one, would like to see him in the P&B.

He was fine before he got injured at Magic Weekend. If people recall his ankle got trapped underneath him and he limped off around the side of the pitch on crutches. He only missed 3 games before coming back....that didn’t look like a 3 week injury at the time and you have to wonder if he’s not fully fit but being forced out there given their injuries and form. He looked a very frustrated figure throughout the game yesterday getting involved in niggles with the Catalans players which does happen when guys play hurt and are frustrated because they can’t play to their best.

He was on one leg at the HJS, just over two weeks ago, which is just as well, as we were terrible.

It maybe a completely different thing but, Trinity's woeful ball control and penalties conceded late in the tackle count made life far too easy fo Catalan and in temperatures approaching the mid 30's, extra defensive sets are a killer.
Catalan certainly coped better with the conditions but, Trinity just made it way too easy for them.

And the ref was awful :wink:

Damn right, I've been wishing he was at Wigan for the last few years.

Whereas you are exactly the weapon that most of us thought - so unlike (one of) the best props in SL, at least you don't disappoint.
