Super League side Hull KR have confirmed that current Newcastle Knights forward Sauaso Sue will join them on a three-year deal.

Sue, who has played in the NRL for ten years for 169 games, is a versatile forward, and has represented the Wests Tigers, the Canterbury Bulldogs and the Knights.

Also a proud Samoan international, Sue will look to use the Rugby League World Cup as a springboard for his time at Hull KR.

Willie Peters, who will coach Hull KR in 2023, said he looks forward to having Sue on board next season.

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

“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.”

Sue looks forward to experiencing the Hull derby, the traditional local contest between Hull KR and Hull FC.

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

It has been a long time since Sue played at Hull KR’s home venue but the game is firmly etched in his mind.

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

“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.”
