Is Thompson OOC as well as Martin? I wouldn't be surprised if we see another BR brought in.

Happy with this, Martins replacement...Younger, non quota, Leeds lad and most importantly of all.. better! Good, sensible signing.

Good signing he has fantastic work rate this should now free up a quota place.

Think Thompson has another year after this.

We are building a very good young set of forwards

Oledski, Holroyd, Smith, Gannon, Walters, oConner and now Bentley

I reckon theres at least 3 future Internationals there, wonder if Bentley will stick with Ireland?


A very good set of forwards. some huge potential there, if they all stick around we'll soon be back to where we should be.

If he is Martins replacement we'll need to bring in a good kicker.

Martin for me doesn't seem to have fully recovered from covid. Seemed sluggish. Wonder if he was told his contract was to end

Gale is quite a handy kicker, not quite in Martin's league but very decent. Personally i'd keep Martin, he's been showing good signs of getting back to form recently and he's got ability to break tough defences. I suppose it will come down to quota spots and balancing that salary cap. Prior's future will have a big say on that too..

Great signing for Leeds. He's perfect for the 6 again rules. Got a massive engine, good skills, great attitude, tough.

Great signing, hopefully for the long term but if he fulfills his potential he may want to try NRL at some stage.

And if him coming to Leeds winds up that ragtag collection of reactionary, perpetually furious, conspiracy theorists and occasional neo-fascists over on Redvee so much the better :)

Yep I like this signing, very glad we've got it over the line. I'm thinking 2 year contract means either a) there are still question marks over recovery from injury, or b) Bentley wants to see Leeds continue to make progress because he's worked hard to become part of a top SL side or c) he is holding his candle for NRL after 2 years still.

We have a great pack developing - very "Leeds-like" with home-grown young lads developing and learning together. In fact said it before but I think this pack has the potential to be the best we've ever had. Maybe not the talismanic Peacock in there but for me this set could become pretty fearsome.
