Introducing Sasa

It says some thing about the stamina of twenty year old Sasa Tofilau that less than twelve hours after a twenty four hour flight from Melbourne he was on the field for his first Kirkcaldy game against Preston Lodge on 24 October.  In that game he quickly endeared himself to Kirkcaldy supporters with a sumptuous off load which produced a Quintan Sanft try.

Like Quinny he is a Samoan, born in the village of Leulumoega on 9 May 1995, one of a family of four. The Tofilau family, like so many Samoans emigrated to New Zealand in 1999 settling in Auckland. Sasa emphasised just how important the family unit is to him and wanted  his gratitude to his single mother recorded

Sasa began his rugby career at the Auckland club Papatoetoe  His rugby prospered in his teenage years before a move took him across the Tasman Sea to Melbourne University.  At the university the coaches there Brad Mika and Tia Suemain really helped to develop his rugby skills.  When he took the field against PL he became the fourth Samoan to play for Kirkcaldy in the last fifteen years

Just as his on field performances have endeared him to club supporters so he has  taken to the club,  much appreciating the warm welcome he has received.  He says “he just loves the people in the Club”

 When asked what his favourite team is he quickly responded “New Zealand”, but on further questioning admitted that he wanted Samoa to beat the All Blacks when they met in Apia last summer. The Samoan NZ link is maintained in his favourite player, Sonny Bill Williams.  Outside rugby his interests are mainly sporting, swimming and basketball in particular but also enjoys the cinema and not surprisingly, considering his size, eating

We will enjoy watching him in the months to come as he helps the Blues move up the table
