Ex-Wakefield Trinity prop David Fifita’s brother, Andrew Fifita, could join NRL powerhouse

The brother of former Wakefield Trinity prop David Fifita, Andrew Fifita, could join a shock club.

That is according to Fox Sports commentator and former Cronulla Sharks team mate of Andrew Fifita, Michael Ennis.

Ennis has revealed a potential destination where Fifita could hang his hat.

“Andrew is a really infectious bloke, he is polarising, there are people who love him and hate him,” Ennis said on Fox Sports.

“But when he is in your organisation you get a real understanding of just how loyal he is as a bloke, and a great trainer for a big man.

“I think he has plenty to give, for 12 months at a place that is lacking experience.”

“I actually think Craig Bellamy might have a look at him down in Melbourne with a number of their big guys moving on.

“A lot of experience going out of their forward pack and knowing the way Craig coaches and how Andrew can respond under coaches like that, I think it’d work.”

Melbourne will be losing the likes of Jesse and Kenny Bromwich as well as Felise Kaufusi to the Dolphins with Brandon Smith joining the Sydney Roosters.

Bringing in Fifita could certainly reinforce what could look like a lightweight pack in 2023 though above to the Wests Tigers has also been mooted.

“I think he is happy with either… but he has spoken previously about the Tigers, he came from the Wests Tigers and boy they could do with some help,” Ennis said.

“He’d have to be a chance of going there and doing a job.

“The other area is the Dragons because they have signed a number of forwards who just haven’t been able to deliver.

“Only 45 minutes down the road from Cronulla and he could certainly add some starch to their pack.”
