No one coming through in the next 3-4 years is better or even as good as him.Just let Luai go ffs. We really don't need to be trying to increase his pay anywhere near 800k a year nor do we need to try keep him longer than the two years already offered. We have the worlds best halfback and a top 5 fullback in our spine as is plus we have to start thinking long term in positions like hooker (Kenny isn't the long term 9) no need to top up a ball running 6 when someone like Luaire is capable on 1/4 of the money.
Can't be greedy now and start paying overs on players like we did under the Elliot days as it could cost us alot of talent coming through! I'm already pissed that Leniu is gone who could have easily been a panther for life taking over Moses role in a year or two. Critter is gone, Burton gone, Kikau gone, Api gone and countless others! Remember when we were virtually promised that we would keep Kikau and Burton but lost them both?
Free the coin that Luai is chasing and invest it in the youth coming through.
He leaves a decent hole in our top squad that will be hard to fill.
He’s worth 850 over 3 years, that’s a no brainer.
Key position players of his standard are not easy to come by.
