I don't have any pre-conceived ideas about him - and only watched the game on TV - at the very least he looks really promising.
[edit] Oh - and yes I would like to see him on the bench this Friday...

'Four feet Fifita'. He just keeps on going.

I was thrilled to see him added to the side. I thought Sheens would take months to blood him. He excelled in the NYC last year and just shows all the signs of a very very good modern day front rower. The question was always going to be how he made the step up. On a 33 degree day getting smashed on the score board he did well.

I have been saying all pre season that once he gets a crack at first grade he'll make it very hard for Sheens to drop him. I can't see why he wouldn't be on the bench again next week.

On a side note if Mullaney gets a run this year you need Fifita in there with him. They had a great combination in the under 20's with Fifitas barn storming runs or offloads leading to a Mullaney line break.

Oh and Sheens has chosen well out of the brothers. I much prefer Andrew and I think Jason is a better prospect then Allan Shirnack.

Well done four feet.

Agree with you, Tooth, loved seeing Fifita in first grade but am a bit worried about young Jake stepping up yet.

He's a gun player but still looks like a little boy - I'd hate to see him getting smashed.

in just 28 minutes he amassed some very impressive stats

14 tackles
7 runs for 66 metres
7 tackle breaks
1 line break

Our best forward was Galloway and his stats for comparison were
60 minutes
13 runs for 119 metres
5 offloads
1 tackle break
23 tackles

So if we halve Galloways stats to make a more accurate comparison
Per 30 mins
7 runs for 59 metres
12 tackles

So comparatively Fifita was probably even more effective a front rower than Galloway. Great stuff.

I thought Andrew Fifita was very good against the Roosters. Surely, he must have earned at least a start off the bench, particularly against the big Eels pack.

:lol:
Love how you rip Big Red off by rounding DOWN on the tackle count,round DOWN on the meterage gain, and by rounding UP on his runs to suit yourself... :roll:

umm, what are you on about CT??? ... 23 divided by 2 is 11.5 so he rounded UP. :roll:

those stats are a bit unreliable though considering fatigue sets in and stats like tackle count/metres gained would get lower the longer you're out there ... would say they're on par.
