“I hope he brings me back bro – you’ve got to ask him that question,” said Leuluai, 26, told Rugby League Week after scoring the 77th-minute clincher in the Challenge Cup final at the weekend.
“I’ve got another year here and I want to play that out. (After that) I’m off contract so I’m open to anything.”
Leuluai was gushing in his praise of Redfern-bound Maguire, saying: “He’s the best I’ve had. His attention to detail is second-to-none. I could stand here for half an hour and rattle off what’s good about him.
“He coached us the best I’ve been coached for a final and he’s going to do tremendous things at Souths.
“If I was a Souths player, I’d be very happy.”
