Andrew Fifita back for the Sharks

Andrew Fifita is set to play his first NRL game in six weeks when the Sharks meet South Sydney in Sunday’s elimination NRL final.

The 26-year-old hasn’t played since round 20 after copping a six-week ban for abusing a referee at a junior game in July.

His return was in doubt after sustaining a calf tear last week, but he completed a field session today and teammate Sam Tagataese says Fifita’s ready to go.


His comeback will be a welcome return to a Sharks side that stumbled into September with a shock loss to Manly last week, costing them a top-four spot.
