Luciano Leilua

Leilua heading north in 2023

The 25-year-old has appeared in 87 games over the course of five seasons for the St George Illawarra Dragons and Wests Tigers.

Despite his 188cm, 114kg frame, Leilua is regarded as one of the premier ball-playing forwards in the NRL. In 2021 he finished eighth in the NRL with 38 offloads, sixth among all forwards with 68 tackle breaks along with five line-break assists and two try assists.


Leilua re-signs with Dragons

The local Hurstville United junior, who can play throughout the forward pack and in the second row, made his first grade debut against the Brisbane Broncos in Round 22 last season and has played five NRL games to date.
