David Fifita reveals why he hasn’t left Wakefield Trinity

David Fifita has become something of a cult hero in one part of West Yorkshire.

After joining Wakefield Trinity back in 2016, the hulking prop forward has made over 120 appearances but throughout his time at the club, there has been speculation of a possible move elsewhere.

However, Fifita is keen to repay the faith shown in him by the Trinity fans, knowing that their struggle and consistent support does not go unnoticed.

“They are part of the reason why I didn’t want to leave,” Fifita told the Rugby League Review podcast.

“I’m trying to give something back to the club whether it’s a Challenge Cup trophy – we’ve been in the top five twice and missed out a few times.

“I just want to play in big games for them and make a big name for myself at the club.”

Trinity resurfaced from the ashes towards the back end of the 2021 season, winning five from their remaining seven games under interim boss Willie Poching before he was handed the reins on a permanent basis.

This season, however, has been a difficult one so far for Wakefield, winning just one game against Toulouse Olympique last weekend.
