Biography:

One of the twin towers that make up the Saifiti brothers, Jacob had an injury-riddled 2018.

After a stellar rookie season in 2016 and rock solid 2017, a shoulder injury kept him out of action last year with the prop only featuring in eight games.

In 2017, Saifiti represented Fiji at both the Pacific Test in May and the World Cup at season’s end. He played in all matches, including Fiji’s quarter final.

Signed until the end of 2020, Saifiti’s sheer size and athleticism make him a difficult proposition for the opposition to tackle and alongside his brother, they’re an imposing force up front.
