Hull KR star Korbin Sims to wear 'Masoe 10' shirt to support Mose as Rovers face Saints

Hull Kingston Rovers’ Korbin Sims will wear a number 10 shirt carrying the name 'Masoe' when the Samoan's two former clubs clash on Thursday.

Round 2 of Super League is designated the 'Mose Masoe Round' with huge fundraising efforts happening in both the northern and southern hemispheres for the Mose Masoe Foundation.

Mose previously wore the shirt until a life changing injury struck in January 2020, and Sims says it will be a 'special honour' to wear the shirt sporting Mose's name.

“It is a special honour to have Mose Masoe’s name on the back of my shirt,” Sims told the media.

“I came to the club in the pre-season and just before the round got announced, I asked to wear the shirt out of respect for Mose.

“Obviously, he has been a great club man in the NRL and the Super League and it is only fitting that we play St Helens for Mose and for me wearing his name and number on my back, we are hoping for a win.

“He is very influential and experienced campaigner. He has played a lot of footy in his time.

“He still shares his wisdom with the boys. I am still getting to know him personally and that will take time, but the boys speak highly of him as a very intelligent person.
“To have him be a part of the club, where he can lend knowledge to younger players, he is always there for a chat and it will be good to get to know him whilst I am here.

"I am mainly focusing on just getting out there, respecting the front-rowers union and showing passion and pride before putting my jersey up for auction after the game to raise money for the Mose Masoe foundation.”
