- James Maloney"He's so big and strong and with that big engine, he ticks everything you need. When he plays direct he's always been one of the best front-rowers in the game. It's only when the big 'Queen Mary' wants to turn and [go sideways] things are different.''
Seemed to take bit of a step back and be less involved tonight with the return of Captain Gal
I don't think it's injury/fatigue because the runs he did make were still great and he still played well just not at the same intensity or level as previous weeks. It's funny how some players go harder when they are given more minutes/responsibility
If Wade is going to be co-captain make Fifita vice co-captain!
It's actually pretty smart from Fifita.
It puts the NSWRL under pressure to pick him or in an awkward position if they don't.
It's pretty hard to not pick the best NSW prop available. And now that he has announced that he would donate his match payments to charity it would make the NSWRL look uncharitable if they left their best prop out.
It would be a different story If he wasn't currently the best NSW prop. They could just say so and so are playing better and get away with it, but Fifita is leading the Dally M's.
Well done Fif's. Smart move to get your origin jersey (which you fully deserve BTW).
It will be interesting to see how this now plays out.
