Rob Lui called to continue playing by head coach Richard Agar

Richard Agar has teased Rob Lui to continue playing past this season.

The Leeds Rhinos halfback has been one of the club’s most in-form players when he has taken to the field since moving to Headingley, but he knows it is time to go back to Australia – despite head coach Agar’s pleas.

“My missus said it’s time to go home, it wasn’t fair on her to keep her away from her family with her grandparents getting older,” Lui said.

“I could go on a couple of years, but I want to be a father.

“I’ll still play local rugby, I’ve still got a lot to give and I want to teach the young boys back home that if you put your mind together you could play Super League.”

Lui played his last home game for the Rhinos as they swept aside Hull KR last week to qualify for an away play-off clash at Wigan.

And, for the former Salford halfback, it was an emotional moment running out onto the Headingley pitch one last time.

“It hit me in the sheds before I came out, I thought about my kids and partner back home and I just wished they were here.

“It just showed how much the boys went out and gave their all for me and Koni (Konrad Hurrell).

“We’re a close bunch of boys, we’ve been through a lot with COVID, winning the challenge cup and the young boys coming in.”
