Loose forward, Lock
Fifita continues to improve with every season and will enter 2018 with the benefit of international experience after making an eye-catching debut for the All Blacks against Samoa in 2017.
A player with immense athleticism, the Tongan-born Wellingtonian can play lock or loose forward and could probably make a good fist of the wing.
However, 2018 proved to be a frustrating period for Fifita who suffered a number of injuries and struggled for regular game time.
He came back in 2019 determined to show his best form and has achieved that, starting most matches in the first part of the season at blindside flanker while also proving to be invaluable at lineout time.
