... AND KLEMMER
Jacob Saifiti's pup has finished training school.
Daniel Saifiti wrote a column on PlayersVoice about his time in NSW camp:
When David Klemmer arrived at the Knights, we had a BBQ at his house with some of the boys and their partners, to talk about life in Newcastle.
That day he told me, ‘if you stick with me, I promise I can turn you into a rep player.’
I was thinking, ‘a few years down the track, maybe’. I didn’t think that I’d be starting this year in Origin. And not many other people saw it either.
But Klem said, ‘I’m serious. You work hard and I can turn you into a rep player.’
DSaf may be in Origin camp but he's thrilled for his brother Jacob getting his start in the NRL side this week.

LOVE FOR THE CROWD
