  1. Good player and worth targeting if rebuilding a club and they did what they had to so they got their man. GC has to start somewhere and buying Fifita, Tino and Ese Ese is good. Get rid of the deadwood like Wallace, Boyd, Proctor, Peats, Cartwright and they are well on the way to improving

  2. Not a 3.5 million dollar player by any stretch of the imagination.
    I do understand them paying that for him though as money is the only reason you would join the Titans. Now all they need is two decent halves, a decent hooker and 5 decent backs. The problem is they can’t afford them after overpaying for Fafita. They will still be a bottom of the table team and Fafita will get his 2nd wooden spoon after picking one up this year with the Donkeys.
