Cronulla Sharks’ Andrew Fifita and Wakefield Trinity’s David Fifita heading for sensational twin deal

Andrew and David Fifita are set to link up in 2023 to play out the last year or so of their careers together.

Andrew has most recently been with the Cronulla Sharks and David with Wakefield Trinity, but both have outlined their desire to play one last season together.

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.”

And, following Wakefield’s big win over Hull KR at Belle Vue – which was Fifita’s last home game – Fifita revealed why he took this decisi0n.

“It was a late decision, only a week or two ago I made it. I spoke to the family, we’ve been through a tough month with a few losses in the family and young Isla (Greenwood) and Danny Kirmond with his brother has hit me hard.

“I feel the time is right to get back home, my brother has said he wants to play with me. We did have the opportunity but I want to play in front of my family whether it’s junior league or A grade.

“I’ve got nieces and nephews I still haven’t seen.”
