Canberra Raiders forward offered Super League lifeline

The departing Canberra Raiders forward Dunamis Lui has reportedly been offered a Super League lifeline.

That’s according to Fox Sports which has revealed that the 31-year-old had been attracting interest from big northern hemisphere clubs.

However, it’s unlikely that Lui will make the move halfway across the world, with a potential deal at the Brisbane Broncos lingering.

The rampaging prop had been monitored by a number of Super League clubs who showed their interest, but it seems that he will choose to keep his family in Australia and was tempted to play in the Queensland Cup before interest from the Broncos came about.

Lui was actually born in Brisbane and made his NRL debut for the Broncos back in 2010 before spells at the Manly Sea Eagles and St George Illawarra Dragons took him to the Raiders ahead of the 2017 season.

89 appearances for the Green Machine later, however, and Lui was not offered a new contract, hence the interest from abroad.

It remains to be seen just which Super League clubs had offered the prop a career lifeline, but it appears as though Lui could be heading back to the club where it all started over a decade ago – in his native Australia.
