Fifita set for switch

Aap

SYDNEY - Cronulla are resigned to almost certainly losing NSW prop Andrew Fifita to Canterbury next season, with the Test star set to announce he's signed a four-year deal worth $3million with the Bulldogs from the start of the 2015 NRL season.

Fifita refused to discuss his future after the Sharks' loss to the Gold Coast on Monday, but skipper Paul Gallen, who left the ground on crutches after suffering an ankle syndesmosis injury, remained hopeful the club can make a late play to keep him.

"It's up to him — it's part of the game, it's a business, you've got to look after your family," Gallen said of Fifita, who's expected to make an announcement later.

"I don't know if it's for sure yet. I am sure the club will come very close to their offer, it won't be chalk and cheese."
