“The Way He’s Handled It Is Poor” | James Hooper On David Fifita Back Flip

David Fifita’s decision to back flip on signing with the Sydney Roosters to remain at the Gold Coast Titans took the Rugby League world by surprise.

James Hooper was critical of the way Fifita went about making the choice on where the next stage of his career will play out.

“He met with the Roosters, nobody knew about it – about two weeks ago he flew down and met with Trent Robinson.” said Hooper

“All of a sudden Penrith come in late as well, so he flies down to Sydney on the Sunday and meets with Ivan Cleary.”

“Now throughout the whole process he was telling both clubs that in all likelihood he was going to leave the Gold Coast…both clubs thought they were in the box seat.”

“I don’t have an issue I think it’s a win for the little guys that he stayed at the Gold Coast Titans but the way that he’s handled it is poor.”
