After predominantly playing off the bench last year, forward Sauaso Sue took on a number of roles in Jason Taylor's side throughout the 2015 season.

The versatile local junior started the year in the back row before finishing in the middle, regularly switching between prop, back-row an lock forward.

Sue was rewarded for his early-season form with another selection in the Samoan team for the Pacific Test, in which the side won a tight 18-16 victory over rivals Tonga.

Sue missed only one game due to a shoulder injury sustained in Round 14, and played his 50th match NRL match for the Club against the Parramatta Eels in Round 17.

Best Game — Round 4 vs. Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs

Sue produced a barnstorming effort after being shifted to the front row against the Bulldogs — racking up 190 metres from 20 runs, as well as 29 tackles in 48 minutes. That effort was matched with his ability to get through 80 minutes of football the week before.

 

Season Highlight — Round 22 vs. Canberra Raiders

After two years without a four-pointer, Sue ran a sharp line and on to a neat short ball from Luke Brooks to go over for his first of the season, and the second try of his career as Wests Tigers conjured up an impressive two-point away win over the Raiders.
