Super League target to step into the boxing ring in bid to earn playing deal

Joseph Leilua will step into the boxing ring in a bid to earn a new rugby league contract.

According to Wide World of Sport’s, the 29-year-old is set to enter the square circle to face off against either Jarrod Wallace of the Titans or ex-Sea Eagle Darcy Lussick.

Leilua has been linked to a move to Super League, but his management are reportedly planning to send highlights of his performances to US rugby clubs playing in the 12-team Major League Rugby competition, too.

Despite winning the Dally M Centre of the Year twice in his career so far, Leilua has had notorious spats with former boss Ricky Stuart at the Canberra Raiders as well as current head coach Michael Maguire at Wests.

Leilua has made 224 appearances in the NRL since making his debut for the Sydney Roosters back in 2010, but it seems as though he has run out of chances and is now attempting to use the square ring as a way back into the 13-a-side game.
