At the time it felt like a really bad loss and earlier in the season when he was tearing it up it seemed like a bad loss but as things go on I am seeing he's not the complete forward.

He barrels blokes out of the way to score impressive tries but he's nowhere to be seen when his team is under all sorts of pressure and can't get down the field, at 1.2m a year you probably need to see him a bit more in the middle third.
Love to know what The Don thinks but; i think Fifita is taking the piss at the Gold Coast...

We know he isnt a effort player....but pretty much what i saw in Origin the other night sums him up.

Munster ran the ball on the last to the left and got Fifita into a gap. Munster supported and was "unmarked" on the inside.....what did big Dave do...

Didnt look left, didnt look right.....Put a grubber through to no-one but the NSW fullback...

And he does this all....the....time....

He isnt living up to his contract....at least up to now....

Yeah Fifita has flopped at the Goldcoast so far. Scored themselves another Taylor; Ash or Dave take you pick.

Goldcoast is where good talent goes to be lazy.

Ash is looking a bit better lately.....playing the 6 outside Fogarty. Running nice shapes and passing really well....if we werent weeded to this idea of Staggs at five-eigth.....Reynolds on the "right" money could be that creative spark outside of Reynolds organising...

But what do i know...?

Ah yes, the old Reynolds to Reynolds combination would take the game by storm.

F@#k overpriced Stagg. I wouldn't mind Taylor and Dufty on salaries reflecting their situation.

I still actually think they're getting their money's worth out of Fifita.

They had $1.3 million to spend, who else could they get that was available? Fifita was by far the best free agent in the game and one of the most marketable players to boot. Not only is he going to attract media attention and sponsors but he's going to attract other players who want to play alongside him. It also brought the Holbrook some much needed security since the Gold Coast were never going to be this Cinderalla story.

It's also only $1.3 for one season, his remaining years are $1.1 Million. That's high, but again, who else could the Titans reasonably attract with that coin?

I still think if the Gold Coast can finish in the 8 by 2022 it's mission accomplished.

Note to salary cap manager, just because you have money, doesn't mean, you need to spend money. I believe that you can bank unused salary cap? His salary is obscene no matter which paint brush you use. If Walsh and Reynolds went to Titans to be white on rice off Fifita on minimum wage.....

I don't see many people that rate Carrigan but I guarantee his team mates do.

Makes good metres every game and plays big minutes, he won't bust the line or create a try but you need these hard nosed no nonsense style of players to do the business every week.
Sure...and if he didn't have bricks for hands, I'd agree.

They could have got Reece Walsh and Adam Reynolds in that 1.1-1.3m

No you have to spend at least $9,000,000 and you can't use that difference in any subsequent years.

They could have got Reece Walsh and Adam Reynolds in that 1.1-1.3m
Why would they want Reece Walsh when they have AJ Brimson? They also have a quality young fullback in Jayden Campbell coming through as well.

And were they available for 2021? They needed to make changes ASAP.

Weren't they chasing Walsh at one stage?

He was from the Gold Coast system but I don't recall them seriously chasing after him.

They were after Staggs, Coates and Piakura. THey may still be after Tesi Niu as well.
