Rob Lui admits he would be in jail without Leeds Rhinos

Rob Lui has been in Super League since joining the Salford Red Devils back in 2016.

Almost 150 appearances in the top flight later and the diminutive halfback is hanging up his boots.

But, Lui has admitted just how Super League and rugby league in general has helped him stay on the straight and narrow after a number of incidents back home in Australia.

“Super League has saved my career,” Lui said.

“I came here down and had a few dramas back home, but Super League made me find that love for rugby league again and that’s why I’ve stayed here as long as I can.

“It’s made me a better father and better person and I’ve got a lot of friends here which I will miss, friends in Manchester and Leeds, so I will miss it over here.

“I’ve had my ups and downs, giving me low points but rugby league has given me the high points.

“I’d probably be in jail back home somewhere without the NRL and Super League – I’d do it all over again if I could.

Lui also professed that he would tell anyone thinking about taking a crack at the British game to go for it.

“If some of the players come up to me and ask what Super League is like, I will tell them to go because I’ve loved every minute.

“It’s got good people and I wish I’d played longer here, but I want to be remembered a someone who has loved the game.”
