After finishing a difficult year strongly, Robert Lui is feeling the love at the Wests Tigers and desperate to remain at the NRL club.
The 21-year-old halfback was criticised for his form at the start of the season with an assault charge against his partner hanging over his head, as the Tigers failed to live up to the pre-season prediction as premiership contenders.
However, in mid-April the case was dismissed in a Sydney court allowing the softly-spoken north Queenslander to build on his burgeoning partnership with Benji Marshall.
The pair’s form over the last two months has been a major factor in the Tigers’ run of eight successive victories, and although he’s been linked with a move to North Queensland, Lui has no intention of fleeing Tigerland.
“I have one more year left on my contract and hopefully we can sort something out,” Lui said.
“I love it here, love the club, love the boys, they have been good for me and my family and we want to stay.”
