Biography:

One of the twin towers that make up the Saifiti brothers, Jacob had an impressive 2017 season, following a stellar rookie season in 2016.

A strong prop forward, Jacob debuted in Round 1 of the 2016 season against the Gold Coast Titans.

In 2017, Jacob represented Fiji at both the Pacific Test in May and the World Cup at season’s end. Jacob played in all matches, including Fiji’s quarter final.

Jacob’s sheer size and athleticism make him a difficult proposition for the opposition to tackle and alongside his brother, they’re an imposing force up front.

Jacob is signed on at the Knights until at least the end of 2020.
