Daniel Suluka-Fifita - South Sydney Player Report

Prop

FG Player - 1181

A one time South Sydney premiership winning squad member in 2023, missing the finals campaign due to a leg injury.

South Sydney junior from Matraville, who played junior reps with South Sydney between 2015 and 2017. He then moved to play with rivals Sydney Roosters before returning home as a mid season transfer. He made his senior grade and first grade premiership debut with South Sydney in the 2022 Round 17 clash against Newcastle at the Newcastle Stadium.

Suluka-Fifita is a fiery strong running front rower, who struggled to perform in first grade as he had in the lower grades.

Suluka-Fifita played his final South Sydney first grade premiership match in the 2023 Round 15 clash against St George-Illawarra at Kogarah Jubilee Oval. He played on in reserve grade for the rest of the season playing his final South Sydney senior grade match in the Reserve Grade 2023 Major Preliminary Semi-Final against the Warriors at North Sydney Oval where he sustained a ACL leg injury in the first minute of the game. He then requested a release in the off season.
