A five-eighth with versatility, the New Zealand product is signed until the end of 2020 with an option for a further two seasons.
After playing the 2018 season with SG Ball, Sasagi started training with Jersey Flegg before progressing to ISP NSW.
After spending 2019 on the sidelines due to a back injury and not getting much football last year, Sasagi is primed for a massive year in 2021 after two consecutive pre-seasons in the development squad.
Who am I: Simi Sasagi
Who is most important to me: My family
Greatest off-field achievement: Finishing high school
Something you wouldn’t know about me: I want to go to university, thinking of going for PE teaching
I’d be lost without: Support from family
What I love most about living in Newcastle: The people, and the area, it’s a quiet area
I grew up in: Auckland, New Zealand
People would describe me as: Chilled, laid back, funny
As a kid my hero was: I didn’t really have a hero growing up, so I just fed off people that were in my environment. So, if I was at training I’d just look up to the older boys. But if I was in school, if I was at work, whatever environment I was I just looked up to people around me.
The last book I read was: The Shoe-Horn Sonata
My favourite thing to do in Newcastle is: Hang with the boys, go to the beach and get out of the house
My greatest on field moment: Making my 20’s debut. That was the only game I played because I was injured for all of last year with a lower back stress fracture. I was out for the season, so I feel really lucky to be here.
