Thats what gets me the most, the fully committed massive thanks to the club statement he gave when he came back then 3 weeks later hes gone... I know he had family tradedgy but he should have stuck with Leeds once his decision was made to come back otherwise what was the point of the deadline agreement

Hasnt he got a bit of form on this though, I think he left St George under a bit of a cloud and then signed for us after committing to the Panthers?

No. The panthers wanted him out while he was still under contract.

Certainly seems that way from what happened at St George and Panthers

Right man, completely wrong time. We got to see flashes of the big man but I don't think we were in any fit state to truly make him put down roots, which is a shame. It didn't bode well how he came to sign on for us and the short time afforded to him getting over here, settled and raring to go. To be frank, from the minute he signed we've had an almost non stop media circus and a distracting "will he go, wont he go" routine which im pleased has ended.

I can see that this pishes folk off and tbh it pishes me off too, but it is what it is, hes put his family first and we unfortunately are left in the lurch. Still, free's up a marquee spot so......

I’m not too upset. He’s a good player and I’d rather he was with us than not. But it frees up cap space and the main thing for me is I think it makes our backrow quicker and more dynamic.
When you think last season we often had Ferres and Merrin there, now we’ll possibly have Martin, Ward and maybe Cuthbertson at loose rather than prop.

I agree it does free up cap space quite a tidy sum too.
But it`s more around IF we use that money that worries me.
Yes we have a tons better squad than this time last year but we need to keep on strengthening and the loss of Merrin has in my opinion put us back a little.
Get a tidy replacement and a decent centre/winger and see where we end up.

Not sure that’ll happen this year considering Agar has just been over speaking to agents and putting things in place. I reckon they have something in the pipeline
