Now making a name for himself in the Super League, former NRL prop Mose Masoe has re-signed with Hull KR.
The hulking prop has agreed to a three-year extension with the Rovers.
Since joining from the St George Illawarra Dragons, Masoe has played 25 games for the Rovers, scoring three tries.
Ultimately, there was just one place he wanted to be at and that was Hull KR.
“I’m stoked with the new contract,” said Masoe.
“There’s a lot of great people at this club and I’m happy to be staying here.”
With family such a key part of Masoe’s culture, their wellbeing is important and they have settled in well.
“Off the field, my family have really settled into the area,” continued the prop.
“One of my kids is at school, the other is enjoying nursery and my missus is in a routine.
We’ve all been made to feel welcome and a happy family makes life easier for me.
Everything is going well and whilst that might not have always shown on the field, we’ve got a great group of boys here and that made this decision even easier.”
Masoe went on to praise the side for their tenacity and knows that they can become even better.
“It’s been a tough year for injuries but it’s good to have a lot of the lads back now because I see a lot of potential in this side,” continued Masoe.
“We’ve got some good older guys and some great young kids coming through.
“We’ve lost some real 50/50 matches this season where I don’t think we were mentally ready, but everybody across the club is working hard to get better.”
“We’ve beaten some top teams and come really close against some others.
“Putting that together consistently is key for us moving forward, but I don’t think we are far off.”
Masoe believes in the ability of his side and wants to do his part to help Hull KR finish the season well.
“I believe in that process and if we can keep working on those combinations and people stay healthy, then we can give it a good shot at the back end of the year,” continued Masoe.
“For me personally, I’ve been pretty happy with how I’ve been going but I’ve still got a lot of things to work on, which is good.
I know deep down that there’s still more I could be contributing to the team, but I’m just happy to be back playing footy week in, week out for a great club.”
