He’s arrived at South Sydney amongst a wave of emerging talent but for now, Tyrell Fuimaono is happy to ply his trade in the Intrust Super Premiership NSW.
The 21-year-old has undoubted potential, having produced a standout showing for the victorious NSW Under-20 side last year. Capable in both the centres and second row, Fuimaono had also represented the Australian Schoolboys while starring for the Parramatta Eels in the junior grades, before arriving at the North Sydney Bears this year.
“I’m enjoying my time there,” Fuimaono tells NSWRL.com.au.
“It’s all new to me – an all new bunch of blokes. The thing that’s made the change quite easy and quite smooth is the people.
“There’s a whole lot of boys coming from two different squads: you’ve got the Bears squad and some of the full-time players,” Fuimaono adds.
“We’ve only been together two weeks and to put a performance together like that is pretty impressive.”
