Sacked $1.3 million teen Moses Suli agrees terms to join Manly Sea Eagles, his third club in a month

first_imgThe terms of the deal, which was sealed late Friday night, weren’t disclosed but Suli is expected to start training with his new Sea Eagles teammates on Monday.Suli was sacked by the Bulldogs on Wednesday after a nightmare stint at Belmore that was marked by laziness and a lack of desire to put in for his massive contract.Suli and his manager were spotted with Manly officials at Narrabeen on Thursday morning to discuss an NRL lifeline.The Sea Eagles still have money to spend in their salary cap but have been unable to make deals due to the salary cap investigation hanging over the club.Suli grabbed the spotlight early last year when he was signed by the Wests Tigers on a deal worth $1.3 million over three years.However injuries curtailed his rookie season for the Tigers and he reported for pre-season in alarming shape, having ballooned to 130 kilos, about 20 kilos above his playing weight.After several warnings, the Tigers released him on January 31 and he was immediately picked up by the Bulldogs for the full term of his deal.However, his first axing didn’t deliver the message that Suli needed to lift his game and he was trouble for Canterbury from the start, turning up late to training and using stress fractures in his ankle as an excuse to get out of sessions early.Such is the regard for his talent that his manager Mario Tartak was always confident that Suli would sooner or later get another shot in the NRL.last_img read more
