Dunamis Lui came to Manly in a bid cement his place in the NRL after playing just 32 games in four years at his former club, Brisbane.
A mainstay in Geoff Toovey’s side, Lui provided plenty of grunt off the interchange bench and eventually worked his was into the starting side following a number of injuries in Manly’s forward stocks.
In his 21 games this season, Lui averaged 30 minutes and ran on average 57 metres from his seven carries per game. He added vigor and enthusiasm when injected into the game from the bench.
Defensively Lui was very strong in 2014. He averaged 17 tackles per game and was extremely effective with his ruthless contact and swift line speed.
His rotation with his front row counterparts proved a real force for the Sea Eagles as they look to build towards 2015.
