Ava is another one that has regressed since lockdown. With the exception of the end of the Giants match Newman hasn't really done much this season either. He's a bit lightweight and spends most of his time with the ball going sideways.


so do you not go to the games, or what?

It was nearly 6 months ago. He shined when he broke through, but has been anonymous this season.

He really hasn’t he was going well before lockdown. See what I mean (on other threads) about how fans turn on young players very quickly if they have a few off games.

It's not like he's in danger of being dropped, but a clean break from centre would be nice.

Would that be Harry Newman that leads the Clean Break and Tackle Bust counts for us?

We've played 7 games ( 6 now the Toronto game has been removed) honestly don't know what some fans want if the team were putting in patchy performance and poor efforts after 15 games I could understand but we played 5 games before the pandemic postponed the season and we managed to get 4 wins and put in 2 decent performances against Hull KR and Warrington and obviously battered Toronto as well, the two performance since the season has resumed have been poor yes but give the team a bit of time to re gel and get some combinations going again this was a new team anyway with players still getting to know each other etc time will prove where the rebuild of this Rhinos team is really at.

Can't say I noticed the 1 against Saints. I did see the 1 against Hudds when Hurrell put him away though.

Like most of the team, Newman hasn't been great in the last couple of games, but before lockdown he was starting to look the real deal. I was hoping to see a bit more aggressive running from him but he hasn't had many chances. Against Huddersfield we seemed to favour Hurrell's wing more often than not.

I'm more worried about the seasoned professionals who haven't looked up to much - Ava, Prior, Martin, and Lui all seem to have lost a lot of form since the pre-COVID part of the season. Gale and Hurrell have been okay, as has Mellor. Handley at full-back reminds us why we need Myler so much: at least Myler offers some threat with the ball in hand, or as a support player.

I really hope Dwyer isn't going to get Andy Hay syndrome now that he's signed a new contract. Some nice touches from Leeming, but he hardly imposed himself - perhaps better starting next time? Would prefer a more physical hooker Terry Newton style instead of two lightweight scooter types, especially against the bigger sides like Saints. Let's hope Leeming is more Lee Jackson than Mick Shaw.

Leeming looks a pretty big lad to me.
