Don v Koroibete

Aquis Titans winger Anthony Don knows he has his work cut out against Fijian flyer Marika Koroibete if he is fit to play on Sunday.

The left flanker has been in hot form but suffered an ankle injury against the Warriors on Monday night although he returned to the field.

He is a real danger and has proved a handful to the Titans in the past few encounters and has a tremendous try-scoring strike rate of 39 tries in 56 games with his speed and power running but our own Don is not far behind with 30 tries in 52 games.

They are contrasting players; Koroibete with his powerful fend, upper body strength and typically Fijian aggressive, direct style while Don’s attributes are more in his positional play, ability under the high ball and finishing skill close to the line.

Let’s see how they match up.
