Moley on Twitter seems to think Leeds are showing major interest.


Well they better get it tied up soon because many more performances like this morning and Widdop won't be leaving the NRL, he was excellent.

Good to hear. Hopefully the rumours have begun because he actually wants to come live and work in England, rather than him not being good enough for the NRL anymore.

He would be a great fit for us, and still in his prime.would be a wonderful signing were it to happen.

GH came out post Thursday and said nobody would be signed. I don' t know how far ward, ferres and JJB are from being fit but it was blindingly clear on Thursday that Walters and keinhorst cannot play long minutes in the back row. I like keinhorst as a player and at centre and he worked very hard but is not a proper second row.

Wakey today signed dean Hadley for a month. He is no world beater but is 24 and is a solid SL second rower. With a big Catalan pack coming, I think he could have helped out a bit and improved us.

I don't get why Leeds would not even consider such a loan signing when we are Already in injury crisis mode after 4 games. Not saying he will change the world but he can tackle and is better than what we put out last week.

Agreed, he's not a seoond rower. At best, he can perhaps fill in there for occasional spells when required but not the whole game.

Tried his guts out on Thursday in the second row (one of the few players whose attitude on the night could not be called into question) yet, according to the match stats, he clocked up no less than 9 missed tackles.

Agree. He put a real shift in middle of park, but Leeds were outpowered as well as everything else. I thought Moon stood up as well. The bit that worries me the most is I think the effort was there. Some were poor but were trying. Some look very low on confidence.

Post subject:  New half back

We desperately need a new half back, and the days of snaring first team NRL players are over. Could this be the solution? If not who else could we realistically sign (half back) for 2018?

Completely the wrong type of player we are looking for.Wouldn't touch him with a barge pole and he spends half is time on the treatment table. I'm sure we will be linked though

If he could stay fit he'd be a fantastic signing for us and England, but the guy seems to be made from riveta.
