Already down 8kgs on last weekend….

10 more to go and he @ 100kg (1.5kg per month until season 2022 kicks off) . I will take this version of Fifita over current version of Nikora who maybe we should fatten up in a kinda twisted reverse hunger games pre-season forward off

In your head, rent free
You can get done for raising forearm into head as the ball carrier

its like people wanna be outraged for the sake of it

seriously, go through the game day thread v the knights and no one mentions the run by klemmer

why is that? because there was nothing wrong with it

No-one cared about crushers, chicken wings or late hits on kickers until people starting getting hurt, either. Mate, it's like a purple Toyota in Wentworthville... you notice one, then you see that they're everywhere.

Something you would expect from a dedicated senior player…. Right!

He's always been a good guy. It's just taken a near death experience for the tabloids to switch their narrative to where it should be.
great career move, hats off to his publicist!

In all seriousness it’s great seeing him painted as the good guy, as he should be. Was the best front rower for years and no other big fella could or can do what he did. His indiscretions were minimal anyway.

Yeah agreed mate. He's got a good big heart and you can tell how well he's liked, even by the opposition teams.

I agree.
I was more suggesting that some other senior players should have hung around to support the rest of the squad and not sooked off back home.

According to IG him and Sifa were at Shark park doing some training.
Good

Starting now is actually a good effort.

Going on a road trip and eating nothing but **** for 2 weeks because you can't be bothered and then having to spend all of preseason cutting back to the size you were the previous season (which was already max if not too big) was really bad by him.

Wonder if he will need Fitzy to spend the whole preseasons telling him what he is and isn't doing well like apparently Bomber should have, or if his 10+ previous years in the NRL and agreed metrics will be enough for him to figure that out for himself.

Some players wouldn't dare do a thing wrong to a coach they fear/respect - I reckon Morris was always looked at like the substitute teacher.

Poor form by Fifita and others but It's a real thing
