Total RL and tomorrow's League Express saying that we are close to signing him for next year. He looked a handful last year.

I'd be very happy with this, i was hoping we'd sign him when London were relegated. Puts in really good minutes, hits hard and is defensively sound. And he's still only about 20 years old. Yeah this would be a very positive step towards a long term prop for me :-)

I'm surprised that he wasn't signed by a SL club as soon as London got relegated.

Would be a very smart signing

Great signing if true. Loads of potential and British.

Don't know much about him to be honest, I guess he's someone to provide cover to the first team squad with a view to breaking into a place in the 17? Can't find any stats on him with regards size and only a short video of him smashing a Hull KR player from the kick off last year. Doesn't look small though.

Whatever happened to Leiws Bienek from London? After watching his youtube clips I remember being disappointed when we missed out on him and he went to Hull FC, but doesn't seem to have done much since...

If we Did sign butler he'd play every week off the bench for me ahead of Sita, if we've signed him we've a raw quality forward.
Bienek is still at Hull i think but with the pack they have i can't see him getting much game time barring injuries. He's a massive lad with shed loads of potential. I think he was on loan to a championship club last year, could be wrong on that though?

Bienek was on loan at (my club) Doncaster briefly in 2018, Batley in 2019 and has again gone out on loan for 2020, this time to Leigh.

I'd also have to do some checking, as far as i can recall from last year he wasn't a big forward, more joe philbin than carvell, i stand to be corrected on that though.

There's a picture of him lining up with Toby King on his twitter feed, he looks at least as tall as King and he's 6ft 2. Butler looks 6ft 3 ish to me...
