Twins think on the same lines.
So, when Cronulla Sharks veteran Andrew Fifita and his twin brother and Super League star David Fifita announced they would be leaving their respective clubs at the end of the 2022 season, people began to put two and two together.
Of course, both forwards have outwardly spoken about one final hurrah in the game of rugby league together – whether that’s in the NRL, Super League or even local leagues.
And, with Andrew looking increasingly likely as though he will stay in the NRL, that could mean that David follows suit back to the league where it all started.
Andrew spoke to The Sydney Morning Herald about a potential return to the club where he made 39 appearances for during his first two seasons in the NRL – Wests Tigers.
“I see ‘Sheensy’ (Tim Sheens) is back so it might be a reunion,” Andrew said.
“It would be nice. I wouldn’t throw it out the window. They haven’t made the semis since I’ve left, which is a cheeky little shot from me.
“If I go one more year, I’m not there to win you a comp, I’m there to help grow the club, the team, grow the young ones and help them get there. I’m the guy who comes off the bench and flies into people for ten, 20 or 30 minutes, and do a job. It’s all about giving back.”
Meanwhile David is set to cut his seven-year stay at Belle Vue short, after basically confirming his exit on social media
Fifita posted on Instagram: “IG BOPPERS FAREWELL🤙🏽
When: Thursday 25th August
Where: be well support stadium (Belle vue)
This is the end of an era! What a ride it has been!! Looking forward to what lies ahead…. Sincerely yours Big Bopper.”
What a sensational deal it would be for David and Andrew to link up at the Wests Tigers for 2023 as both look destined for a reunion next year.
