Second all of that. Both got the potential to be super players. Would love to see us get a top class winger to compliment them. Think Handley is almost there.
A winger has to be on the shopping list for next season.

We ain't signing another winger as Tom given another 2 years. I'm OK with that.
By the time those two years are done, Tindall should be ready.
Flip we might have a backline of

Walker
Tindall
Newman
Broadbent
Handley


Now that's exciting!!

Luke Briscoe is out of contact this year. I would not renew and I would target a replacement with real pace. Can't but help think that some have formed amazingly high expectations of Tindall's talent on tne basis of one run against Catalans. I'm sure he has some talent, but it looks very, very raw to me. In any case, I really hope the club don't opt to settle for such mediocrity on one wing for two years. Nothing against either Briscoe really, but I thing the role of the winger has moved on and they haven't. We need to do better if we are aiming to pick up the big prize.

For you academy watchers, what do you reckon to Nichol and Stewart coming through? I though Andrew Stewart looked a handful and aggressive.

Anyway as much as I’ve backed T Briscoe I’m not sure he has much left to offer at Leeds now. Injuries looked to have taken their toll to me. Not sure I would renew.

We have a heap of salary cap becoming available and for positions we aren’t bringing young lads through into promptly, we need players who are up there in class. Despite the strides we have made, would you pick any current Leeds player for England?

Handley and Oledski might make a 17 at a push but... we do need some more star dust around the place. In fact I’ll say if we don’t make some tougher decisions on players than we have been doing, we may really struggle to break through into that real top tier again. We have no divine right.

T Briscoe already got a 2 year extension last year, so here till end of 2022!
How that correlates to 'nothing to offer' is beyond me.

Coby is a tough kid, he wouldnt ever take a backward step, hes vocal and a competitor. Stewart is a good defender, very solid. Neither are anywhere near Joe Burton's level and we released him.

Still early days for both but theyve lost a year and it will be interesting to see how that impacts players. Ive been told some have come back out of shape but thats understandable.

I dont really see either making it at Leeds but both are decent young players.

I agree that we need some pace on the wings , and I would if possible replace both the Briscoes - they are both well below the level that we now require. Tom at times gives a very good impression of just not being interested. Why our wingers cannot compete when we put up an attacking kick is beyond me.
A lot of people seem happy with our pack , but a second row of Martin and Mellor again is just not good enough . Martin cannot break a tackle , and their combined go forward is pitiful. We need a second rower who can make a break / half break and offload - come back Ali !!!

The new ball steal rule had virtually took offloading out of the game at the moment. Defenders clamp the ball and attackers are fighting to keep a tight hold of it. The thought of offloading is last thing any attacker is thinking of.

What an awful rule it is. Who decided it would improve the game? Can think of no other sport that compulsively tinkers year after year. No wonder the game cannot break out of its existing spectator base.
