Wests Tigers NRL Head Coach Mick Potter has praised the mentor role Kiwi international Adam Blair is providing to some of the younger inexperienced forwards at the Club.


Potter says Blair has taken promising forwards Sauaso Sue, Ava Seumanufagai, Taqele Naiyaravoro and Jack Buchanan under his wing during the pre-season.


Adam Blair is proving to be a mentor to the front-row and back-row players. He trains like he plays and that is rubbing off on those younger guys, Potter said.


There is no fuss about Adam, no flair or anything. He just does his job and does it the best he can and it is a solid days work for him. He works very, very hard and makes everyone around him accountable.


When you divide players into smaller groups, Adam is a leader of those teams. He makes the players lift and he gets them to play their best.


His communication skills on the field are excellent and are one of the best in the squad. One valuable pieces of the jigsaw puzzle of playing rugby league at the top level is that you need to be a really good talker. Adam is excellent.


However Adam is just one of the many players in the squad who are helping us to get better. The more people we have like that, the better we will be.
