The star of southern Sydney, Dana Gagai, opened a speculation for the first time in order to leave the club and say: "I will never say those words."
Gagai reported that he had left Rabbitohe last month after being James Roberts in the middle of the season.
The club quickly rejected any proposal that Gagai would want when coach Wayne Bennett faced a Queensland representative on the reports.

"I'm totally committed," Gagai said.
"If I am honest, I do not know where these rumors started. It was very shocking when Wayne pulled me to the office to talk a bit about it.
"I never said these words, I will never say those words."
He denied that he had any bad feelings about Roberts.
"He grew up here, it's home, and it's good to get him back. With Jimmy, I sat in the All-All-Stars All-Stars, and he's a bloody character, "Gagai said.
"He's a little comedian, boy. I really like to have him here. "

Ironically, Gagai has scored three attempts in four games since he crossed the winger – a test scoring that he had not recorded since mid-2015.
However, the 28-year-old said that the more specific reason why he is more under the threat of Bennett than former coach Anthony Seibold last year.
Asked about the preferential position, Gagai said he wanted to be more involved in the attack.
"I just want to get on the ball. With some new employees who came here in our attack, I can do it now, "Gagai said.
"We were pretty leftist last year. We set up to the right and moved left and that was our game plan every week. «
He said that this was because they became predictable in the previous final defeat against the eventual premieres of Sydney Roosters last year.
"We had to be much more versatile because the cocks were closed in semi-finished products and we did not have plan B," Gagai said.
"But now that Cody (Walker) has shown what he can do, he plays on both sides of the ball. He put me on a couple of experiments on the right edge. "
