Seems a solid signing yes. Needs to fill out a bit as others have said but a recognised second row for a second row role.

There have to be a few more to come with the salary cap we should have available for 2020. We’re clearly in for at least one half back.

Looks v quick for a second row. Got an eye for a try thats for sure. Reminds me of a young Menzies (obvs wont be anywhere near as good)

Menzies? Wow. That's a hell of a statement right there.

Looks more like Liam Sutcliffe, but let’s hope he plays like Steve Menzies.

Clearly didn't say hes going to be as good but has the athleticism and eye for a try like Menzies did also his defence is good hes in top ten in SL for tackles

Steve Menzies :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Absolutely no way. He's not in the same universe.

Solid defender but doesn't hurt in the tackle really. Taking the ball forward he can hit a gap if it's a mile wide but seems sometimes to shy away from contact.

He's more of a Paul Medley than a Paul Dixon. And not as quick as Medley.

Know in Leeds, it will be more than likely John Menzies

Certainly seems like Leeds are waking up and Splashing the cash on the right kind of players too (ie upcoming English instead of cant be arsed Aussies) the offer from hudds was a good one- and more than other bigger clubs who initially showed an interest were willing to pay.
Good luck to him, let’s hope The current culture at Leeds changes for the better as he’s got a lot to offer a club as a fairly young improving player.






the future's bright the future's claret and gold

Well after that glowing resume it looks like he will be back with you on loan for the last two years of his contract
