New Wests Tigers recruit Tui Lolohea says he feels he's settling in well to his new club, but believes the best — for himself and the team — is still yet to come.
One of his side's best last week against the Sea Eagles where his sharp footwork and running game threatened the Manly defence all afternoon, Lolohea said he was adjusting well under Coach Ivan Cleary, and was determined to keep working at producing his best footy.
"I'm feeling pretty good and getting better each week as I go on," Lolohea reflected.
"Ivan has helped me out a lot, and I can't thank him enough for what he's done.
"But I actually don't know how far off my best I am, to be honest.
"I don't think I've ever actually played to my best before and Ivan has said that to me too, so hopefully I'm building towards that and hopefully I can show that on the field soon.
"I think it's down to me playing the way I play for the full 80 minutes," he added.
"The games I've played, I've been good for 60 and then hidden for 20. So if I can get an 80-minute performance of myself playing the best that I can, I think I can help the team a lot."
Despite recording a loss in last week's game against the Sea Eagles, the wiry playmaker said there were plenty of positives to take from the game heading in to this week's clash.
"We let ourselves down with execution in the back end of last week's game," he added.
"If we can get better on our last plays especially, we'll be a different team.
"I know we're sitting towards the bottom end of the table, but the boys are still working hard to get a smile on our faces at the end of the game and be there singing the team song.
"We're all building together and I know the boys are ready to go this week against Parramatta."
