Macgraff Leuluai extends Vikings deal

2 posts in this topic

Widnes Vikings have announced that Macgraff Leuluai has signed a two-year contract extension, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2015 season

Wakefield-born Macgraff is the latest member of the Leuluai dynasty to play in this country. The younger brother of current New Zealand international Thomas and the son of former New Zealand representative James, he came through the junior ranks with the Auckland Sea Lions, Sydney Roosters and Newcastle Knights, and was capped at U16 level for New Zealand.

The 23 year-old says that he is delighted to further his stay at the Vikings, commenting; “I’m happy to sign for another two years at Widnes. Individually and as a team, we are working hard and learning each day.

“By the end of this contract, I will have been in this country for 7 years, which is definitely longer than I ever thought I’d be here. I came over initially to live with my brother, and to have at a crack at making a success of it as a player. I’m still enjoying my time over here and I’m excited and pleased to have been offered the opportunity to stay at the club.

“I’ve got a lot more growing to do and I’m really looking forward to doing this, in a Widnes jersey.

“It’s a good time to be at the club and the only way is up for us. We’ve progressed massively from last year and if we continue to do that at a similar rate, then we will certainly be there or thereabouts over the next couple of years.”
