Warriors wing David Fusitu’a is hailing the influence of club captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, following another exemplary display in last week’s 26-10 victory over the Gold Coast Titans.
As the Warriors recovered from back-to-back losses with a return to form against the lowly Titans, captain Tuivasa-Sheck was a shining example to the rest of his players, scoring a solo try to remember and running a game-high 176 metres.
Speaking to Stuff though, Fusitu’a says that Tuivasa-Sheck’s performances come as no surprise to the rest of the Warriors.
“That’s just Roger being Roger,” Fusitu’a said.
“He sets the standard for us every week, win lose or draw, and it’s not just during the games, Rog sets the standard at training literally every week as well.
“It’s crazy on the field to just watch him and sometimes you have to check yourself because you can get caught just watching in amazement, instead of pushing up.”
Tuivasa-Sheck claimed the 2018 Dally M Medal for the best player in the NRL, and currently sits seven points behind 2019 leader, Cameron Munster of the Melbourne Storm, for this year’s prize.
