The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

THERE are no prizes for guess­ing who Queens­land will target in Ori­gin II af­ter their first of­fi­cial train­ing ses­sion for the must-win clash in Syd­ney.

Ma­roons for­wards took turns wear­ing a coloured vest to rep­re­sent hulk­ing NSW prop An­drew Fi­fita in Queens­land de­fen­sive drills at their Gold Coast camp on Fri­day.

Time and again “Fi­fita” was called be­fore up to four de­fend­ers swarmed on the vested player.

“He’s got re­ally good foot­work. He’s a dif­fer­ent shaped body, re­ally long legs and he is hard to han­dle,” Michael Morgan said. “It’s as a team that we’ll have to try and con­trol him.”

Morgan said it was im­por­tant to blunt Fi­fita and stop NSW “feed­ing” off his en­ergy.
