Wagga Wagga lad who moved north to PBC in 2008 after playing 92 games with Wagga Tigers, Wodonga and PBC. Played in under 18 premiership with Wagga Tigers and NSW/ACT Rams. Fifey was a key player in PBC surge into the GF in 2008 and played representative footy for Queensland Country at the national championships. Rates his 2010 Thailand footy trip as his best ever performance, with Ana Ivanovic in his dreams as runner-up.
Clearly a discerning footballer he has a passion for the bloods, but paradoxically his most treasured possession is a 1996 North Melbourne premiership footy (North knocked over the swannies in '96)
A well disciplined engine room type and handy across the back running the ball in, or through packs, or thumping the spinning bomb to the square. Fifey helps Ana dress before he preps by visualizing speedy and brazen attacks on the hard ball followed by lighting quick effective disposals. Regularly snaffles a goal or two while rotating through the half back line. Ran second in B&F to Tinka in a sensational debut season in 2009. Appointed dual skipper with Tinka 2010 and led from the front again with 16 votes.
Appointed stand alone skipper for 2011 he led the side with panache and bozone (substance surrounding smart people that stops stupid ideas from penetrating) with a brilliant season start and finished well. 10th in the B&F, Fifey is in the fast group for 2012 pre season work and we can expect another year of consistency plus.
Passed the 50 game mark and with practice should conquer frisbee throwing.
