After a meeting took place this week in Northern Star Cafe it seems the Fifita boys are in the sights of the Knights
David, 27, has an option to return to Wakefield Trinity, where he played the second half of last season, but is understood to be keen on a return to the NRL.
Andrew has two-seasons remaining on his contract at the Sharks, who this year won the NRL Grand Final with the Sharks, but has stated his desire to one day reunite with his twin brother.
“We are certainly looking to bring someone with experience and a point of difference into our forward pack,” Knights chief executive Matt Gidley said. “I want to be really clear, Andrew is a contracted player at the Sharks. David’s manager Warwick Wright is based in Newcastle and boys came to have a chat with him and also catch up with Darren and Nathan. David has the same physical traits as his brother. It is only a conversation at this stage but we are certainly looking outside the square for someone who can come in with a real point of difference, can improve our team and bring a different dynamic.”
Gidley said David Fifita, was among a number of options the Knights were considering. Sharks forward Chris Heighington and Sea Eagles prop Josh Starling have also been linked to the club.
“We have obviously got the Safiti boys, who are going to be great long-term players,” Gidley said. “A player like David Fifita certainly brings a point of difference but there are a lot of different options. We are talking to as many people as we can before going through the process of making offers and entering negotiations. The dinner on Monday was informal and a chance for Nathan to meet David and see if he falls into his plans.”
