“They Can’t Spend That Much!” | Wendell Sailor Bemused By Luciano Leilua’s Dragons Contract

Wendell Sailor on The Rush Hour gave his opinion on St George Illawarra Dragons’ new, “expensive” signing, Luciano Leilua.


The now-former North Queensland Cowboys forward will return to his debut club on a $2.3 million three-year deal.

Dell, a fan of Leilua, is happy his former side could get a young forward of his calibre, but questioned the amount the Saints have agreed to pay.

“The Dragons have to overpay,” started Sailor.

“That’s why they’re are at the moment, that’s why they’re one of the favourites to win the spoon.

“They need to get the right players but they can’t spend that much money.

“I know he’s a good player, good luck to him, he’s a good young fella but that’s big dollars.”
