    Andrew and David Fifita have reportedly met with Newcastle Knights coach Nathan Brown.

    A couple of Triple M listeners - Robert and Nick - sent us pictures of the Sharks premiership winning prop and his brother having dinner with Nathan Brown and their management.

    “Saw the Fifita brothers out for dinner wth Nathan Brown and management,” Robert told Triple M.

    While it’s too early to say if Knights fans should get excited, the acquisition of this pair would be a massive boost to the struggling club.

    Newcastle has been on a signing spree of late, having signed Manly’s Jamie Buhrer and premiership-winning Cowboys hooker Rory Kostjasyn for their 2017 squad.

    It would be great competition at training - the Fifita twins v the Saifiti twins.
    The Fifita twins would win that one for now, but my feeling is that the Saifiti's are very competitive guys who would push the old guys till they beat them in a year or so.

    We hardly need a guy outed for running up the sideline at a junior match abusing match officials and opposition players. No thanks.

    No way in hell is it for Andrew. We were interested in David a few months ago back when he was on our shopping list. Only makes sense. But Andrew can chuck himself in the mix, I wouldn't complain.

    Just as likely as the Knights signing Holmes or Andrew Fifita.

    It would be an excellent play.
    We have built up the warchest for something, and this is something.
    Even if it doesn't come off - this is the sort of thing we need to do.

    We better bloody well spend it considering we haven't for the last few years and likely will have some dead money next year too
