Former Leeds Rhinos man Robert Lui linked with shock big move

Robert Lui is currently plying his trade for the Townsville Blackhawks – the feeder team for the North Queensland Cowboys in the NRL.

However, The Mole at the World Wide of Sports has revealed that there could be a huge move on the horizon for the former Leeds Rhinos and Salford Red Devils halfback.

Lui, who only returned to Australia at the end of the 2021 Super League season following six seasons in the UK, was being watched by Gold Coast Titans head coach Justin Holbrook, according to The Mole.

Townsville – Lui’s team – were playing against the Tweed Head Seagulls in a Queensland Cup game last weekend, with the 32-year-old scoring a try, dominating the game and then taking home the Man of the Match award.

With Gold Coast struggling in the halves as AJ Brimson and Toby Sexton fail to gel in 2022, The Mole believes that Lui could well make the big switch.

Lui, who played for the Cowboys and Wests Tigers for eight seasons before leaving for the UK, became a cult hero at Salford where he made over 100 appearances.

A loan move to Leeds came about in 2019 before that was made permanent, but injuries blighted his time at Headingley.
