Wests Tigers new recruit Tuimoala Lolohea says he's quickly finding his feet as his new club and is confident working under Ivan Cleary is bringing out the best in him.
After a tough loss against the Cronulla Sharks last Saturday, the five-eighth said that he and the team were continuing to learn from the tough defeat and would take plenty in to Friday's clash against the Gold Coast Titans at Campbelltown Sports Stadium.
“It’s been pretty good so far, the boys are really welcoming and I’ve had a lot of chats with Ivan, I know he’s doing a lot to help me to become a better player," Lolohea enthused.
“It’s been so good so far, so I’m looking forward to keep going with the boys and enjoy the rest of the year.
“Luke [Brooks] controlled the game probably better than we have the past couple of weeks and I got to flow on the back of him so it was good to have him back and get another week of preparation from him so hopefully we can go again better this weekend.
With Origin tonight, Lolohea said having the Club's Origin players back on deck would be a huge benefit to the side, but would prepare for the pair to be unavailable for the contest.
“It’s a pretty tough game, it be a day to recover and then a day’s play," he said.
"We’re preparing without them. If they do play it’s a boost and if they don’t we’ve got boys that can fill into their positions and I know they’ll do a good job.
“If they do back up it’s a big positive for us especially for the level of potential they both have and what they do on the field."
