SHARKS TV | Fifita talks Manly

Sharks front rower Andrew Fifita spoke with the media yesterday as he and the side amped up their preparations ahead of the trip to Brookvale on Monday.

Putting in a huge effort in the Sharks Round 2 win over the Dragons, Fifita said he's both hopeful and confident of turning in a similar display against the Sea Eagles this week.

"Against the Dragons we all knuckled-down on our own roles, and just concentrated on the good things that we did, and it worked out for us," Fifita said.

"I think there's a really big challenge for (Manly), but we have to take it to them, we're coming into their fortress. It's going to be a really hard game for us."

Fifita also gave an appraisal on the form of young-gun Valentine Holmes, the recent showings of Ben Barba, and his own hopes and goals for the 2016 season.
