2018 Player Review - Sosaia Feki

Having first arrived at Cronulla as a 20-year-old who had been earning a crust as a part-time removalist in Auckland, Sosaia Feki has worked his way up to rate amongst the most dependable wingmen in the NRL.

A somewhat shaky start to 2018 and some untimely injuries would see 'Feks' on the fringe of first grade for a number of weeks throughout the year, but he'd finish off the season in the form we've all come to know and love.

A strong runner of the ball, always one to charge out of his teams' defensive end and a powerful finisher across the stripe, when Feki is on he's a joy to watch.

Feki featured prominently in the highlight's reels at the end of the year as well, with a couple of spectacular plays Sharks fans are sure to remember.

The first would play out in Melbourne where he would take off down the touchline, dancing perilously close to the white stripe, before throwing an absolute miracle ball to Valentine Holmes for a timely four-pointer.

The second show of skill from Sosaia would come in front of his home crowd, again taking off down the left edge before coming to the final line of defence and launching a perfectly weighted banana kick that would land on the chest of Chad Townsend for a spectacular try.

The left corners of Shark Park have become the perfect place for a great shot of a Feki finish over the years. Here's another to add to the collection, with Feki crossing against the Knights in Round 24.
