Salford Red Devils stand-off Tui Lolohea says joining the club from Leeds Rhinos has helped him rediscover his happiness. The once-capped New Zealander joined Leeds at the start of the 2019 season from NRL outfit Wests Tigers.
However, after a disappointing 17 game spell in which he only scored three tries, he was transferred to the AJ Bell Stadium in a swap deal involving Robert Lui. Since making the move, Lolohea has scored three tries in seven games as Ian Watson’s men have made a late-season charge for the play-offs.

They sit fourth in the table with two games left of the regular season and their next clash is a trip to Headingley to play Lolohea’s old club in what could be a crucial match for Salford. Lolohea says he is glad he made the move after his spell at Leeds did not work out. “It’s been amazing here at Salford,” he said.
“Personally and collectively, everyone’s confidence was hit at Leeds. It’s is a big club and when the coach leaves after a couple of months and you’re fighting at the bottom, that’s always going to make it tough. “I was in the middle of it there, but I’m loving my footy again at Salford.”
