    There’s a lot of talk rapana is going to rugby. He’s off contract next year so has been able to sign anywhere since last year and probably would of been locked up if him and raiders could agree on value

    Rapana is off contract and might leave too. Not sure they’ve played many games together this year. Leilua being linked to us is at least a sign that the club is a desirable location again

    I'm happy to tolerate him, provided we don't lose our young centres elsewhere. Means Hoppa would have to play left edge though.

    Could be the player we need. Is strong, creates something from nothing, not afraid to offload and kind of a grub. I wouldn’t mind

    Everyone would but somehow the Roosters will still be able to lock him down for years to come because everyone wants to take unders to play for Trent and the Roosters.

    The Canterbury Bulldogs are trying to sign blockbusting centre Joey Leilua, who surprisingly has been given permission by the Canberra Raiders to talk to other clubs.

    Leilua is under contract until the end of next season in the national capital but will be released early if he can reach an agreement with the Bulldogs or any other NRL club.

    His agent approached the Raiders recently to discuss a possible contract extension.

    Instead, the 27-year-old Samoan international was told the club cannot afford his $600,000 salary long term because of cap pressure.

    He is also seen as a liability because of his ill-discipline.

    The heavyweight centre recently copped a two-week suspension and gave away an eight-point try for kneeing Manly opponent Reuben Garrick.

    Still, on his day there are few other centres in the game with as much to offer in attack. He bravely came back this year after breaking his neck.

    Leilua would be a wonderful acquisition for the Bulldogs, who desperately need more oomph in the backline out wide.

    Canterbury would be Leilua’s fourth NRL club. He started at the Roosters before stints at Newcastle and Canberra, where he has played for five years. He has played 201 NRL games.

    He has often been spoken about as good enough to play State of Origin for the Blues.

    To fit Leilua under the cap, Canterbury would have to look at offloading a senior player.

    He has a connection to Frank Pritchard so could be possible.

    We're going to be connected to anyone available so will take article with grain of salt.

    If we sign him he could be the most polarising player in Kennel history!
