    Deano must know him enough to know whether he'd be a good fit for the club. On the field, minus the rubbish, he'd be absolutely perfect for us. And if he delivers $600k is a bargain. He is a bully and we haven't had one of those in the outside backs for a long time...

    He’s exactly the kind of player we need right now

    I don't think we need to offload any players. Surely we have enough money to sign just one centre of his Calibure?

    600k? If we wanted to pay that we'd get him as I don't see any other clubs paying that. Leilua's never been my cup of tea and I think we can do better come 2021 regarding that position especially for that money. I believe it would of been worth paying Ramien 600-700k if we did sign Leilua for that amount. If we're going to spend that much on a Centre, buy the best in that position for a little more, for e.g. Latrell, Manu, Staggs, Cotric (Staggs would probably be cheaper but you get the point).

    Saying that if we did sign him I'd have faith that Pay and the leadership group could contribute in a positive way regarding his ill discipline. I just think we can do better that's all.

    As much as I would prefer the players you mentioned. I don't see them leaving their current clubs. If we can get him for 600k for 2-3 years and raiders chipping in. It's a good deal

    Would signing leulia affect our ability to offer Manu a contract?

    They'd be crazy to pay him anywhere near that much. He's had off field issues, is overweight, a horrible defender, a dickhead with an attitude problem, gets suspended, is inconsistent and makes more errors than he scores tries.

    600k for a player like him would be mental. Fuck that! I can see him leaving Canberra and doubling his weight while playing half as well. He's a headcase who is a ticking time bomb.

    Cotric, Manu or Xerri would cost the same and have none of the above issues, are much better talents and aren't scumbags like Leilua is while being five years younger. It scares me with the players the club is linked to sometimes. I hope there's nothing to this.

    Raiders probably willing to let him go because of Cotric. Move him to centre permanently while upgrading him and Simonsson. Most logical move for them.
