FOCUS FIXED ON FIFITA
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.
