He stepped up | Roger Tuivasa-Sheck

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck spoke to the media this morning ahead of his sides Round 25 clash with the Manly Sea Eagles at Brookvale Oval on Friday night.

He spoke about his new milestone, his connection with Jennings and his injured teammates.

When asked how the team will cope without key members, he was willing to look on the brightside. 

"It's always a big loss when your Captain goes down," he said. 

"Then again, we have Jackson Hastings who has shown he can play that sort of footy," he added.

When asked what Hastings is like to play with, he had nothing but praise for the young man. 

"He's very similar to Mitchell Pearce in my eyes," he said.

I like playing with him because he's not afraid to throw the ball around," he added.
