    I ran in to Fifita and his mates at bondi beach a few years ago, biggest bunch of f**kwits ive ever seen, just down there in a big pack starting shit with everyone around them cause they knew no one was going to say anything back to 8 big tattooed blokes. Some poor guy with an attractive GF walked by and copped a mouthful from the lot of them. Fifita chose to make himself unavailable for the entire series, don't pick him.

    Theres a reason Andrew doesn't get the good wrap like other reformed nrl players. Fifita never had to struggle(careerwise) back from anything for one, two he carries himself like a spoiled baby.

    I'm not considering the fact that he WONT donate to charity, if he promised it and went back on his word not only would I not want him playing for NSW but in the entire NRL. Give him the benefit of the doubt, 80k to charity is pretty good.

    For sure.

    More importantly if you pick him you'll have to pick a prop for game 2 and drop them for game 3 when Fifi comes back.

    Will it really matter if we win games 1 & 2?

    Even if we do win games 1 & 2, i think I'd want him back for game 3 just so he can contribute that extra 40k to charity.

    Selecting him would be farcical & open a Pandora’s box.

    Will only encourage other players in the future to request game 2 off to play for Tonga or Samoa. You’d render game 2 a joke.

    If Jordan McLean wasn't injured I would be saying that too but we can easily fit Klemmer, Vaughan, RCG and Fifita into a team.

    You need to win footy games. That’s it.

    A few years back Israel Folau signed to play AFL while playing for the Broncos, his club, state and national captain at time, Darren Lockyer, came out and publicly stated that he shouldn't be selected for Queensland as its a very special team to play for and guess what! Mal Meniga, the most successful coach in Origin history picked him anyways and they won. We've always been trying to learn from Queensland but we more or less do what they say and not as they do. Remember that Queensland loyalty bullshit they were trotting out for years and when shit did get bad for them they started chopping and changing immediately while we foolishly stuck by proven losers like Mitchell Pearce all because 'he knew the pain of losing'. They pulled a bullshit victory last year, in all honesty game 2 was a robbery and now they've changed their tune to something else 'NSW were ignorant' 'We could pick a forward pack of nobodies and we would still win' blah blah blah bullshit. Pick the best players you can even if they're not available for 1 of the games and for goodness sake stop listening to the utter crap those hillbillies keep spouting year after year after year.

    hahaha he struggled back from trying to kill himself, not other innocent members of the public. I know you put "careerwise" in there but that just pushes the point that the bloke doesn't let other shit interfere with his footy. If not sooking to media and keeping himself to himself is carrying himself like a spoiled baby then we need more spoiled babies in the comp.

    Haha, look forward to see the commitment shown by those selected to send their match fees to charity. No way will they see the opportunity to make some cabbage.
