"Manly turned up ready to play and were quite physical and we had to match them. It wasn't that much different to playing against the top six Super League teams for intensity. I loved playing in front of a full house at Headingley, you can't compare anything to the atmosphere and stadium here, it was better than Elland Road and in the NRL, it's the one thing I'll really miss when I leave.
"It means a bit more to me to beat one of my former teams. I loved my time at Manly and they are the team I still support now back there, I followed them when I was young so it is great to get a win over them but it all stays on the field, there is mutual respect," added Leuluai.
