Wests Tigers forward Sauaso Sue spoke with ABC Grandstand following Saturday night’s 23-8 win over the Parramatta Eels.
The 24-year-old made 102 metres and 22 tackles against the Eels, while also scoring his first try of the season in the 74th minute.
Sue paid credit to five-eighth and man-of-the-match Mitchell Moses, who stepped up in the absence of Luke Brooks.
“The boys are really growing into their skin,” Sue said, “Especially Mitchell Moses, the last few weeks he has really carried the boys around the park – in particular last night, he really stepped up with (Luke Brooks) going off.
“The guys are really loving their footy at the moment and loving being around each other,” he said.
The Samoan International said the forwards, in particular Elijah Taylor, have been working hard throughout the season as the side sits in equal eighth place.
“Elijah has been massive for us since coming to the Club,” Sue said. “He has taken a lot of pressure off Mitch and Luke in the halves, and it has been a great inclusion for us.
“Woodsy is always leading from the front, as have Ava (Seumanufagai) and TG (Tim Grant), they always come on and make a huge impact.
“I’m loving it at Wests Tigers, I think the next few years are going to massive with our young side that we have.
“I’m just loving my footy and being around the boys at the moment,” he said.
With Wests Tigers set to face last year’s premiers North Queensland this weekend, Sue said the home crowd advantage at Leichhardt will be crucial in securing the two point.
“Hopefully we can get a good crowd at Leichhardt to help us get over the line against the reigning premiers, hopefully everyone can get out there,” he said.
