Brisbane Broncos star David Fifita has undergone surgery to repair his injured knee.

The back-rower required an operation after suffering damage to his lateral meniscus.

With restrictions on elective surgery in place amid the coronavirus pandemic, a trio of surgeons agreed Fifita's case met the necessary criteria for him to go under the knife.
