Fifita turns down Australia, Origin and chooses Tonga

Andrew Fifita says he's played his last game for NSW and Australia after electing to represent Tonga over the Blues in this year's State of Origin period.

Fifita caused waves when he pulled out of the Kangaroos World Cup squad last year to play for the Pacific nation and has long weighed up who to pledge his allegiance to in 2018.

His decision was complicated by the fact a representative scheduling change means the annual mid-year Pacific Test will be held the same weekend as the stand-alone Origin II in Sydney - so he couldn't play for the Blues and Tonga.

And Fifita said he'd made the decision to preference his Pacific heritage over his Blue jersey.

"I've been putting it off for a while now ... but I won't be playing Origin," Fifita told the Halfcast UFC Podcast.
