David Fifita unsure on future as Wakefield contract enters its final year

David Fifita has become one of Wakefield Trinity and Super League’s biggest characters since moving to the northern hemisphere.

The former Cronulla Sharks forward joined Wakefield Trinity ahead of the 2016 season after wanting to be more than a bit-part player in the NRL.

From debuting in 2016 to 2021, Fifita has made 121 appearances in the red, white and blue of Trinity and, despite not being able to get back home for over two years, the rampaging forward still has hope of staying in West Yorkshire.

“If my legs are still going and my wife is happy to stay, then I will keep pushing,” he told BBC Radio Leeds.

“If she is feeling homesick – because right now we haven’t been home for two years and by the end of next season it will be three years.

“So it is going to be tough getting through this season together.

“If we had have got home for a break, she might have been happy to do a few more years.

“There is an option here for the following year and that is in both favours, so it is up to me and up to Michael (Trinity chief executive, Michael Carter) if we want to pursue that last year.”
