Salford Red Devils half-back Robert Lui is probably not alone in one aspect of his life as a Super League player – after admitting he’s not really sure how the league structure works in this country!
Most fans have had the benefit of an inaugural year for the new structure, which began at the start of last year. But given how he’s only in his first season in Super League, Lui told Salford’s official website that he’s not really sure how things work with the split!
Lui was certain about one thing though – victory on Friday against a “world-class” Huddersfield side is a must for their hopes of making the top eight, something they have not given up on.
“I’ve not really got my head around it yet,” he said when asked about the structure. “When it comes though with whatever happens in the future I’m sure someone will explain it to me. I’ve just got to worry about the present because this is a must-win game for us this week.”
“Huddersfield are a world-class team, last year they went all the way to the finals and we still believe we can make the eight. We’ve got to take it game-by-game and worry about ourselves.”
Lui however, did admit that he’s warmed to life in the country after joining Salford from the NRL at the end of last year.
He said: “I’ve really enjoyed it.
“I love it here at Salford and the competition is really tough; you’re playing against good teams week in, week out. My family is all settled and I just want to concentrate on getting in that top eight.”
