He’s already played State of Origin, and is now ready to perform on the international stage, just like his uncle John Fifita, who played for Tonga in the 1980s.
He said: “It is special to be named in the team to play England and I am very excited. I am doing my family proud and there a lot of players that I want to play with, I am at the highest level now and I am playing for my country.
“They just take it to a new level. It is just so professional here, I am learning a lot. Everyone is saying that I am still a rookie, and it is my first tour, my first camp, my first Australia selection, and I am learning a lot of new stuff.
“I really can’t wait to play on the weekend just to prove to the boys that I am worthy enough to play with this bunch of blokes.
“Playing State of Origin has given me so much confidence in my game, playing the way I play my game.
“It has just given me a free run so I can’t wait to get out there on Saturday and show the world what I can really do.
“I think my role will be to come off the bench and bring that impact back into our game. I did it at Origin level and I was fairly happy with the way that I played and I am hoping to bring that boom off the bench for Australia.”
