Definitely a Warriors signing from past days.
Addin Fonua-Blake, Lodge, Evans, Walsh… POS isn’t afraid to sign players with a bit of character… Leilua fits this category.

Arguably you get them cheap knowing you have leverage over them as ‘a club willing to give them a chance’. Even Ash Taylor fits into the ‘needs to change their behaviour’ camp.

With this strategy we need a really strong professional environment, with standards and be prepared to kick the ones that don’t pull the line (Evans) to make an example of what happens to those that err…

A strategy with a lot of risk but you build a talented squad with a lot of upside for cheap. If we have the systems and support to keep them all ‘paddling in the same direction’ we could be lethal. Potential to implode though…

You can write what ever novel you want about Joey leilua but he is a lazy and is not what the warriors need, I would play Pompey over him any day of the week!

It’s a no from me. Tigers signed him on the cheap and he still managed to fuck up at every opportunity.

Yeah I think he is too risky. Addin Fonua-Blake and Lodge were top tier props. Evans had been a solid rotation forward at para and he saved the dumb shit till he got to us. Walsh had big wraps as a kid with potential. Lielua will be 30 next year, a hot head, over weight, unfit and defensively erratic. Great on attack some days...but too many negatives to make him an option....even on the minimum.
 
That's right, sticky could see the writing on the wall, Tigers were just stupid enough to sign him in the first place.
He cost them that 2019 final by holding the pass, when Rapana would have gone in. Apparently his asking price was crazy, also his brother Luciano’s was up there too. I think the tigers have re signed Luciano for about $570k a season.
 
Well pos is good friends with his manager….
Can’t see him coming here tho- wants to stay in Sydney and wants to play in the forwards.

Fitzgibbon on the warriors coaching role and why he declined
 
Hopefully this time next week we will start seeing details of recruitment acquisitions for the Warriors! Preferably for 2022 but also 2023... My wishful thinking is suggesting some positive news for Warriors fans as the club have let go at least 3 players by my recollections! I think we have to wait until then.
