    If he does leave, it will only be because someone made him a great offer which will help him take care of his family. Can't begrudge the man that.

    Hope he stays.

    Well, he is probably the most under payed player at our club. Id like to see him extend for an extra year (2010 and 2011) but I cant see that. He seems destined for England.

    this is a nothing article which is purely based on getting a reaction from Parra supporters, which it did going by Luca's response..lol

    yes he's off contract in 2011, but so is half our squad, also he will be 32 in 2011 so we need to be very careful with what we offer him and for how long.

    personaly, I would focus on Hayne (if he's not already done) Morts and Mateo before Fui at this stage.

    Yeah it's kinda like the Thurston articles that come out saying that Johnathan is looking at all his options.

    What else would be f**king do!

    Fui will be off to the UK by 2011, hopefully on a massive salary. And good on him he deserves it.

    I think one more year may be about it for Fui, if he's 32 in 2011 then it would surely one be 1 year deals from then on.

    I've said it before and I will say it again...

    If Fuifui is allowed to leave I will no longer support the club. He must retire in an eels jersey

    Will resign morts and mateo as our two key signings next year then go after fui.

    As the number 1 prop at the moment he'd be commanding at least 325 00 on the open market, and I could see quite a few super league clubs ponying up more than that
