New Rhinos deal for Leuluai

Veteran Leeds Rhinos prop Kylie Leuluai has been handed a new contract after putting on hold his retirement plans for a second time.

The 35-year-old New Zealander signed a new 12-month deal a year ago after shelving plans to hang up his boots and has now been given a rolling contract, which means he can play on until either party decides the time is right for him to finish.

Leuluai, a five-time Grand Final winner who made his 200th appearance for the Rhinos in last Friday's 42-22 win at Bradford, signed his new deal on the eve of his side's Tetley's Challenge Cup fifth-round tie against Huddersfield.

"I am really pleased to have got the deal sorted and can now look forward to the future starting with a big game against Huddersfield on Saturday."
