- Siaosi Teisina Fifita was accused of seven crimes, including drug possession
- In a video interview from prison, Fifita begged to watch his son David's debut for QLD
- He was denied the bail after being considered a high risk of recidivism
A father with a 15-page criminal history has desperately pleaded to be released from prison to watch his son's debut in next week's home state.
Siaosi Teisina Fifita, father of football player and the youngest recruit of Queensland, David Fifita, 19, asked for bail after being charged with seven crimes, including drug possession.
Fifita Snr was released conditionally when he was arrested and had appeared in court several times since the 1990s.

Fifita Snr was arrested on May 11 after allegedly a bag was thrown over a fence containing a substance suspected of being ice.
The police also say that he drives too fast while driving a car with two different license plates registered with other vehicles.
He asked on bail from the Magistrates Court of Brisbane on Monday via a video call in custody.
& # 39; I would like to leave for the second state of origin or something, & # 39; he said to the court.
Fifita Snr also said that he did & # 39; the good & # 39; and that his violation of the conditional release was a minor mistake.
Fifita's request was rejected after he had breached bail conditions and had a long criminal history (depicting his son David with mother and grandmother)
Fifita Snr had appeared before a court several times and had violated the terms of bail and had not shown when necessary.
Magistrate Grace Kahlert denied his request to see his son play in the upcoming state of origin, because he was at high risk of being insulted again due to his criminal past.
Siaosi Teisina Fifita will appear in court on June 19.
