One of the primary reasons for Leilua’s return to St George Illawarra was for family reasons to be closer to his father.It’s a win for the Dragons because North Queensland have already paid Leilua for four months of this calendar NRL season which means the Red V will only pay a tick over $500,000 for Leilua this season.
