Wests Tigers winger David Nofoaluma says he's pleased with the team performance shown in the season-opening win over the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
One of the team's best with a game-high 204 metres, Nofoaluma said while he was happy with his own efforts, the performance of the overall was most pleasing to him.
"Being Round 1, it's a good first hit-out to see where we're at," he said.
"The team effort was really something that stood out to me.
"Everyone was backing up and supporting each other, and really got involved.
"We really looked like a team, which was pleasing."
Labelled as one of the team's best players in 2016 by Coach Jason Taylor post-match, the Campbelltown Collegians junior offered some insight into his career-best form run.
"It's obviously nice hearing things that from your coach," Nofoaluma said.
"JT gives me a lot of confidence going in to each game and I think that helps a lot.
"I'm pretty happy with the way I started the season.
"I think [my form] just comes down to being a bit more professional in what I'm doing at training. I've also been playing a few years now so the extra experience really helps too.
"As I'm getting older, I'm maturing in the game more and learning new things. I've learned lots in the games that I've played in the past and I'm taking what I learned in to the future."
