'Winning a premiership would mean the world': Hull KR new boy Sauaso Sue outlines goals

Sauaso Sue has set his sights on winning Super League after agreeing to join Hull KR on a three-year deal from 2023.

The forward will follow incoming Rovers head coach Willie Peters from NRL club Newcastle Knights at the end of the year.

Sue has made 169 appearances in the NRL since his debut for Wests Tigers in 2013. He has also represented Canterbury Bulldogs.

The 30-year-old is relishing the challenge that awaits him in Super League.

"Winning a premiership would mean the world to me, the fans and the team," he said. "That’s the biggest goal.

"For myself, playing consistent football and helping the boys along the way is important.

“I’m looking forward to moving over with the family, experiencing the Hull derby and taking on what Super League has to offer.”

The hard-hitting Samoa international, who is set to feature at the World Cup later this year, has vowed to throw everything into his stay at Craven Park.

“I’ll bring a bit of leg speed in the middle, strong defence and some aggression with energy to lift the boys up during games," he added.

“I can’t wait to be building combinations in the pre-season, which will be big, and getting to know the fellas as well so we can feed off each other’s energy in games.”

Sue is excited to link up with current Knights assistant coach Peters at the Robins.

“He’s a really good guy," said Sue.

"It’s going to be great with him as a head coach. He brings a lot of energy.

"It’ll be good for me to work with him more in the coming years."

Sue is Hull KR's third confirmed signing for 2023 after securing deals for Brisbane Broncos prop Rhys Kennedy and Huddersfield Giants outside back Louis Senior.

Peters believes the experienced Sue has plenty more to offer.

“He’s a hungry footballer who’s ready to prove himself in the Super League," said Peters.

"He’s ready to play his best football. He could have stayed in the NRL but it's an exciting time to be a part of Hull KR. He and his family want to be a part of it.”
