Always found the 'he's soft' line a bit difficult to swallow to be honest. Would he really have got this far if that was true?

O come on you had Simon Haughton, ive seen football players role about less than he did after Mcdermotts high tackle in the CC in 99 even his own team mates where embarrassed by that.

Then again we had Paul Medley, Medley could gave been the best Forward in the World

Maybe he's fed up with his own situation. 2018 he was excellent, an outstanding 2nd rower.
Last year it all went wrong with his head injuries. When they go off with a head injury and have the HIA it is not the player's decision whether they return to the field or not.
We don't know what has been said to him at the club. Maybe they've wanted him to go out on loan for some time and there wasn't a club that could accommodate him. A 2 month loan is an odd one, can't remember the last one of those.
If he hits form does anyone think he'll return, or stay at Leeds?
If he hit top form then I'd have him back. If he doesn't then what happens then?

No player is soft but he’s not got the steel a lot of other players (forwards especially) have got. He’s got as far as he has on his fantastic physical attributes IMO. Not many forwards are 6ft 4, 17 stones but can run with the pace of a back. He’s a great athlete but there’s always been question marks over his mentality.


just like Karl Pryce

I think this is a smart move from a Leeds perspective, just what they need in the forwards and it’s an opportunity for him to put himself in the shop window, feels like more of a trial than a loan move.

Good luck to him.

He was the best forward in his bank though.
Power pace try scorer, add to lazy lacklustre no bottle. Ended up a great water carrier at the Bulls.

I’d happily let him go for a fee. For all the talent he has he goes off injured most games, the way he goes down you’d think he’d be out for the rest of the season and then he plays the next game. I think he’s soft, wouldn’t mi


A fee or free?? Get him off the wages if he is not going to be picked.
