Raiders Coach, Matthew Elliott, stressed that he was hopeful Lolesi would stay with the Club.

?I think we were hopeful Jamaal would agree to our offer, but he was asked to take a pay cut and he has a young family, so we need to respect that he needs to consider what?s good for him.?

?I?ll have to test the market and see what happens now,? he said.

?Staying with the Raiders is my main priority and I haven?t given up hope of staying just yet,? he added.
