Was actually a penrith junior then moves to Griffith with his brother at 16. Came to Sydney at the back end of 08 to sign with the sharks (he actually played a trial NYC game with them) but then we snuck under their guard and nabbed Andrew and his brother. Great work by the club!

He wont play Origin next year but if he continues his destructive ways he'll be there 2012. Who he'll play for is anyone's guess. DOesnt matter where you're born and played your first senior league, if QLD want you they'll get you! e.g. Inglis, Falou in more recent times

I believe he is actually queenslander because he played his 1st senior football up here I am not 100% certain of that though just what i had heard.

Good thread Geo.

And his performances over the last 3 weeks is why I had to piss my pants laughing at some of the comments made about his weight. TBH, the bloke's hardly got any dough around the guts and has an adequate fitness level, sure, not as good as some at WT's, but when you look at the physical structure of the man, he's obviously never going to be as fit as some. Coming off the bench, he provides the impact we need in the fowards, Galloway was useless AGAIN yesterday, we had to rely on the Back rowers to do the hard work up front. The bloke is the future of our foward pack.

Yeah because Galloways 140 odd metres were just terrible :roll: :roll:

Fifita is coming along nicely.

Galloway obviously has to score 12 tries, make six thousand tackles and find a cure for cancer before he get's any credit.

I thought Galloway was better than Fifita yesterday. Fifita is a gun however Galloway is a better prop at this point.

When you add Gibbs and Payten to our prop rotation and you have Ellis and Heighington belting it up as well our pack looks real good.

Dunno what game you were watching yesterday as Galloway was pretty good and made over 140 metres.

Galloway was close to the best forward on the Park.....This is about praising young a bloke who has been fantastic...the reason Fifta was dropped was only partly due to his weight...he was stuggling with the grind the Manly game was evidence of that. Sheens dropped him to freshen him up and it's worked a treat......

Please don't taint a thread cause you hate Galloway's guts...

Fifita got my 2 points yesterday, just for pure impact.

Sure that Fifita's Dad/Uncle is Johnny Fifita, who played for Saints in the 70's.

Fifita's numbers against Galloway's looked good yesterday. Big Keith is just a footballer I'm afraid, his rate of improvement has been negligible over a 5 season period
