The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

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.
