David Fifita reveals toll of Broncos exit before plotting Titans’ ‘ultimate goal’
Gold Coast signing David Fifita admitted it was very difficult to leave the Broncos, but he ultimately had to do what was best for his family in inking a $3.5 million deal with the Titans.
The 20-year-old will start a new phase of his career in 2021 since moving from Red Hill to the Gold Coast after scoring 13 tries in 44 games for the Broncos and playing three games for the Maroons.

“I was injured during that time, so I had the time for it all to sink in. I sat down and thought about what I needed to do.
“I had personal stuff going on and it impacted me a bit because I wish I was out there playing and I wish things weren’t going the way they were at the Broncos.”
Fifita also revealed he had the opportunity to move to Sydney with the Rabbitohs tabling a monster deal, but ultimately decided to move to the Titans due to the club’s proximity to his home in Brisbane.
