Leuluai links up with Warrington

Warrington have appointed former Leeds prop Kylie Leuluai as the club’s head of rugby operations.

Leuluai, 39, made more than 250 appearances for the Rhinos before retiring at the end of 2015, playing in six Grand Finals, five Challenge Cup finals and five World Club Challenge matches.

The former Samoa international also played in the NRL for Wests, Sydney Roosters, Parramatta and Manly.

Leuluai said: “For me, going to a new club is always an exciting prospect. I’ve been at seven different clubs over my career and I’ve loved the whole experience; different structures, meeting new people, achieving objectives, and for me that’s an exciting challenge.

“Another thing that’s appealing at Warrington is the staff they have there, they are all my age, it’s like a new generation coming in. I’ve played against the likes of Jon Clarke, Richard Mathers, Andrew Henderson, Lee Briers and Karl Fitzpatrick, and played alongside Steve Price back in Australia.

“All I will try to do is add value to the club. I’m hoping to add to the culture from first grade to the youth department and pass on the knowledge that has helped me to achieve success. From the welfare perspective, I can relate to the players as I’ve been there and done that.

“I know what it takes to overcome the challenges they face, be that form or injury, and I will be able to help in those areas.”
