Leuluai could abandon retirement plans

Leeds prop Kylie Leuluai could abandon plans to retire for the second consecutive year, if he can earn a new deal at Headingley.

Leuluai, 35, originally announced plans to retire last year, before signing a deal for 2013 mid-way through the season, and then stating that this year would definitely be his last.

However, he has gone on to play some of the best rugby in his seven seasons at the Rhinos.

He told the Yorkshire Evening Post: “I love what I do and I am interested in playing on.

“I was supposed to retire three years ago but to be able to carry on and still enjoy it and have the energy I have now and the enthusiasm, I can’t stop just yet.

“Hopefully they will speak to me and we will get something sorted. I have definitely got another year in me.”

The Samoan international, who was born in New Zealand, is due to make his 200th appearance for Leeds against Bradford on Friday.
