Fifita explains “cheap s**t” comments

Wakefield’s David Fifita has provided further comment following his Tweet last week, which questioned the tackling technique of opponents Wigan.

Fifita described an apparent challenge at knee level as “cheap s**t” and the clip has since divided opinion.

And today, Fifita told The Sun’s Gary Carter: “I didn’t post the video to try and get Wigan players banned but I know myself and Pauli Pauli are big boys and I see them going in on him.

“Every week I’m just copping it and copping it. I’m trying to find a good way to hold my stance and I’d just watched two players go off the field because of them going straight in.

“I don’t want it happening on a weekly basis, I don’t want cheap crap like that to take us down. Surely there are other ways than dirty tactics like that.”
