Mose Masoe still growing into his role at Saints
SAINTS boss Nathan Brown believes that new prop Mose Masoe (right) is still finding his feet at Saints and the team still working out how best to use the big man’s attributes.
He was speaking after praising Masoe’s contribution to Saints’ win at Bulls.
Although he has not made an immediate impact that those viewing his big hits you tube compilatation expected, Brown explained that much of that is to do with recovering from his lack of a pre-season after picking up a knock for Samoa in the World Cup.
Brown said: “Mose has had games where he has shown signs of improvement and one or two where he has been quiet, which is not uncommon for a player coming to a new country for a new team.
“Mose and Sia (Soliola) both went to the World Cup, both had injuries at that tournament and missed pre-season.
“Sia has been super in some games and had a few quieter ones but how we use them can help them as well.
“Those guys playing at their top makes us a hard team to play against.”
With Kyle Amor out for a spell - Masoe will carry a bigger burden, but one that will be shared with Alex Walmsley and the cluster of promising front rowers at the club.
