Ex player says super League club “is where rugby league careers go to die”

There is a belief that some overseas players come over to Super League for a pay day but that’s not true when we look at the legacy of players like Ali Lauiti’iti at Leeds Rhinos and his teammate Kylie Leuluai or his cousin Thomas Leuluai at Wigan Warriors.

Currently in Super League Paul Vaughan is ripping it up at Warrington Wolves and Curtis Sironen is doing the same at St Helens and both have committed long term to their clubs.

These overseas players often become cult heroes at their clubs when they join the right side and Justin Horo undoubtedly enjoyed his time at Wakefield Trinity being a part of one of their best ever seasons in 2018.

He has now revealed that a comment he gets hammer for, saying “Wakey is where rugby league careers go to die,” was something he and his side would use as motivation.

“I used to get hammered all the time, because I was at the back end of my career, my last two years. I always say Wakey is where rugby league careers go to die, which obviously they don’t like hearing that, but it’s a bit of fun, and it’s said between all the players,” he said on James Graham’s The Bye Round.

“But that’s what made us break together because we actually had two really solid years and what happens is, with that sort of mindset that we had within the group, there was no egos. Zero egos in the team.

“We used it as a fuel. Yeah, no one wants us anymore. We’re on the back end. We’re regarded as scrap heap. So we’ll play Wigan and Saints and use that as motivation.”
