Sironen looking to return with impact

Wests Tigers forward Curtis Sironen says he’s looking forward to making his return from injury this week against the Newcastle Knights on Sunday afternoon.

Named for his first NRL game since suffering a slight hamstring injury in the opening minutes of the Club’s Round 2 win over the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, Sironen said watching the last few weeks of football from the sidelines has been frustrating, but he was keen to make an impact this Sunday when he makes his return off the interchange bench.

“It’s been a pretty disappointing start to the year for me,” he said.

"I’ve never had any hammy troubles in my career, so I didn’t really know what it felt like. It was just a bit tight and I felt a twinge in my first carry, and although I tried to stay on for a bit, but it was no good and it wasn’t worth putting myself out for another month or so.

"I missed three games, but I’ve been working hard with the rehab team and I’m good to go.

"It’s been difficult watching the last few weeks but I’m excited I’m back in the team and get to have a crack again on Sunday. I wasn’t all that happy with my performances in the trials and in that first game, so it was good to have that time away and start fresh now against the Knights.

With Dene Halatau named to start on the right edge Sironen started the season on against the Warriors, the 22-year-old said he was happy to come off the interchange bench this week — looking at the move as a positive that could help bring out his best performance so far.

“I really want to add some energy to the team this week,” Sironen enthused.

"Coming off the bench, I probably don’t have to worry about saving myself for an 80-minute performance or anything — I can just try and have as much impact as I can straight away.

"I’m not trying to come up with the big play or anything. I just want to do my job and let the boys who have been doing those great plays for us continue to do those plays.

“I’ll just look to carry the ball well and get as involved as I can.”

I think he should just work on his impact. Just tough hard runs. I wonder if he would be better suited to the lock forward role. I’m not sure if he is explosive enough for a wide running backrower.

0/3 without siro and 2/2 with him. correlation always equates to causation. we’ve missed siro so much.

Well Sirro went down very early against Manly, so I’m not sure we can clain 2/2, but you’re right we are much stronger with him in the side.

Impact…i will believe it when i see it or is his younger brother making his debut…:slight_smile:

That’d be a first





Come on you know i had too :slight_smile:

Seriously though, it’s a new yr, i’m willing to give him one more chance to prove me wrong.

Its about time he did something, we’ll see.

borderline first grader better than Lovett borderline reserve grader.

Sorry to say, but he would be a better secondrower than Halatau

I’m quite sure that Sirro’s absence has had nothing to do with the Tiger’s losses and there is no correlation. His overall performances in first grade have been, overall, quite underwhelming and have nowhere near matched the hype attached to his name.
To be honest, I find the article quite boring, I mean, he’s looking forward to returning and he’s felt frustrated? Who cares?

He played 5 minutes in round one. Nice try.

i thought the sarcasm in my post was quite obvious since the common saying is “correlation does not equate to causation”

Sorry Tig, I missed it! Too dry for me after a day at work but I agree with the sentiment….
