Broken neck! I'm worried.
Can anyone paste article?
Would need to offload a senior player? we have no Senior fucking player.... unless they mean senior as in senior citizen?
Leilua Smith combination would be nice. Haven't had a genuine attacking centre that has the ability to create space for his winger with a fend and footwork since Willie Tonga.
If we could afford Api and Ramien / Eesee we should have enough to sign Leilua for 600K without moving on any player
They'll have to pay 800K or more to keep Mitchell so they won't be able to pay Manu anywhere near the same. I reckon we would be a good chance at getting Manu for the same price as Leilua (600K) or maybe 650K
I wouldn't pay 600k for him but wouldn't mind having him.
Had room for 2/3
Now need to offload to fit one.....
I wouldn’t worry too much about that the journos wouldn’t have a clue about our cap position.
Would be good but nothing over 500k and no more than a 2 year contract
They'll keep both and the media won't bat an eyelid...They'll say it's "Cronk" money. Roosters dont lose anyone they want.
Much better than what we have atm, has a connection with deano
As in Terry Lamb, Steve Mortimer etc.... Dib, left does that count??
Inu when he took things seriously could
Wouldn't give him more than 450k
Bring him over
Give him a 50k no suspension bonus on-top of that and it's a done deal lol.
Yeah he's got the X factor can score a try by himself pros outweigh cons for sure if we get him at the right price
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
Hopefully bullshit and just making up crap. First I’ve heard of if. This is a guy that threw his ex down the stairs, spat in her face and sent her nude photos to her brother. Should be playing at Manly with Fonua-Blake, Walker and co
Offload a senior player?
Well we have already offloaded Lichaa who is now a senior NRL player
