Sauaso Sue PA

Hull KR have signed Samoa powerhouse Sauaso Sue from NRL side Newcastle Knights on a three-year deal from 2023.

The 30-year-old front-rower has made 169 appearances in the NRL for Wests Tigers, Canterbury Bulldogs and the Knights.

Incoming Hull KR coach Willie Peters said: “He’s a hungry footballer who’s ready to prove himself in the Super League.

“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.”


Sauaso Sue targets silverware with Hull KR

Sue looks to become Samoa’s record appearance holder at this year’s World Cup. He currently has 14 caps and needs just three more.

Sue has previously played at Craven Park. He scored a try in Samoa’s 38-4 win over Papua New Guinea in the 2013 World Cup.

He said: “It’s been a long time, almost ten years but I still remember that game like it was yesterday.

“The fans were crazy and the whole atmosphere was unbelievable. They were really vocal and I’m really excited to taste that again for the next couple of years.

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

“Winning a premiership would mean the world to me, the fans, and the team. That’s the biggest goal. For myself, playing consistent football and helping the boys along the way is important.

“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 will link up with his new team-mates when they commence pre-season training at the end of the year.
