SULI REVIVES CAREER WITH ONE-YEAR SEA EAGLES DEAL
TALENTED teen Moses Suli will attempt to revive his troubled career at Manly after agreeing to a o one-year deal on Friday night.
Only three days after being rel leased by Canterbury, Suli has agreed to join the Sea Eagles and is expected to start training this w week.
An NRL spokesman said M Manly were yet to lodge an offic- ial contract. It’s understood the NRL will factor in the outcome of the Sea Eagles’ salary cap investigation before approving Suli’s deal.
Manly’s premiership-winning under-20s coach Wayne Lambkin and captain Manase Fainu played major roles in luring the promising back to Brookvale.
Lambkin was Suli’s schoolboy coach at Westfields Sports High, where he attended alongside Fainu and rising Sea Eagles backrower Haumole Olakauatu.
The three remain close while Lambkin has knowledge of Suli’s family background.
Manly will be Suli’s third club this year after parting ways with the Wests Tigers and Canterbury.
The 19-year-old is said to be devastated at the prospect of losing his career and has promised mates he won’t let them down again.
On top of dealing with the expectations after signing a threeyear, $1.5 million deal with the Tigers after only playing two Holden Cup games, Suli has had to deal with a raft of confronting problems, including the day he arrived home to find his father dead of a heart attack.
He has also had extensive injury problems.
