He was offered to all the SL clubs in the offseason, Leeds had a look but declined due the issue with his knee.

Desperate times call for desperate measures I guess.

If it’s for this year only it may well be the spark that is needed to lift the club temporarily. If it’s beyond this year I would be concerned.

He may well short term bring the best out of David which can only benefit Trinity.

I don’t get this nobody would touch him. Wigan signed George Burgess surely knowing he had a major hip issue which he now needs a hip resurface, which that potentially being his career. That just doesn’t happen over night that’s a chronic injury. With any quality player now coming from the NRL surely there are risks as to why they are actually ending up over here, whether it being behaviour or physical state.

I don't remember him being 'offered' and I certain doubt very much that no one would touch him.

If it’s true and he can lend a hand getting the team on the front foot allowing some breathing space for the backs , bring it on .Always a gamble but if it works out it’s a win win for the club because were certainly lacking some serious punch up front

Let's be clear.
Our props are
Fifita D
Arona
Green
Tangata
Tanginoa (as cover)

Is there anyone that thinks Fifita A would be 5th choice?
If not he's an improvement.
In actual fact, he'll be first if he plays to even a fraction of his capability.

He was clearly aiming to be first choice prop at Cronulla, losing weight, etc, but I'm guessing that the NRL clubs have gone for faster props this year due to the speeding up of the game. Even Papalii has lost weight (albeit he did it for a boxing match).

It might also rejuvenate David. We have to remember that Big Dave has been stuck here with no chance of going home for quite a while, staring at four walls, getting out just to play in empty stadiums. It might be the tonic they both need.
EVENTUALLY, WE'LL WIN SOMETHING, ,MAYBE, IF I'M STILL ALIVE THEN

There's also Battye in the mix when fit but I agree, A Fifita would be first choice not 5th and likely to replace Tangata anyway if it allows the move to take place.

I just don't get the negativity on here.
I see it this way - if he a crock and it proves a bad move, what have we lost? were not paying the majority of his wage by the sound of it and we'd be gaining by not paying Tangata.
If he is a hit then what a player to have, and I agree, it would probably give Dave a boost and kick him on!
I'd give it a go all day long!

at least if Westerman stays he'll be able to show him what to do in case it pops out
