‘He’s a polarising figure’ Ben Ikin on Andrew Fifita

NRL 360 Host and former NRL Star, Ben Ikin has told Halftime with James Willis that he believes Andrew Fifita may be a good leader, after reports Shane Flanagan will make him Captain this Friday for the Sharks:

‘He’s a polarising figure Andrew Fifita…while on the surface you can see he obviously has the odd brain explosion here and there…. there is obviously something redeeming in him once you get to know him, that wants you to follow, wants you to play with him.’

‘We’ve had Luke Lewis on NRL 360 all of this year, and I really rate Luke Lewis as a human being; he speaks so highly of Andrew Fifita’

‘It’s not in the general cliched tone… of a bit of a lovable rogue or ratbag…it’s deeper than that, it’s like this is a really good guy’

‘I take it that’s what Shane Flanagan seeing in him right now… If Paul Gallen doesn’t play, as captain the other Sharks players would follow Andrew Fifita’
