There's a huge difference between making a panic signing to keep the club afloat in the Middle 8s and making a signing to plan for a (hopefully) new SL campaign. Sinfield and co. will be determined to set high standards of professionalism, and Hock's name simply doesn't fit with that, especially after the recent experiences with Hardaker. Sure, Hock may well be a reformed character these days, but if there's even a whiff of trouble it will reflect poorly on the new coaching set-up at Headingley and there will be plenty of people to say 'I told you so'.

I have no idea which 'enforcer' will protect our younger players, as you suggest. Hock would be a poor choice for such a role, however, given his long history of losing control with officials, and propensity to be wound up by other players. A bit more nastiness in the forwards might not be a bad thing, but we don't need 'personalities' with an unprofessional history like Hock IMO.

My point was that despite his previous drug taking and hitting referees Sinfield thought he would be a good signing albeit for 7 games.
Who knows he might have kept him on longer.
As far as players with an unprofessional history goes Leeds have kept faith with quite a few over the years.
But let`s agree to disagree and fingers crossed we get the right players on board next year as that is all that matters.

having read Hock's book, McDermott met him with a view to signing him. As for resigning Ablett for 2 years a good move I think . We are ok to keep 1 out of Ablett,JJB and Delaney , 1 only though.

I have it on very good authority from within the club two things.

One not so great. Ablett has signed a new TWO year deal.

Two. There are 3 Aussies signed up and one British. I don’t know if Lolohea was one of those 3 he meant. Said one of them is a big signing.

Wouldn’t divulge any more.

I'll take this with a pinch of salt but thise 3 aussies better be quality if we,'re desperate enough to give Ablett a 2yr deal.
Complete waste of SC retaining any of Ablett Delaney & Jjb imo.

OQ Cuthbertson, Parcell, Delaney, Garbutt. 2 spaces.

Lolohea and Peteru don’t count on OQ due to kolpak status.

Sinfield confirms we have a number of deals completed but cannot announce anything until 100% safe.

Good news. Beat Fax and that should solve that.

Not quite (I think!) - if Toronto keep winning then they'll only be 2 points behind us for the last game but hopefully with a much worse points difference if we are clinical against Halifax.

Our points difference will be too much, it’s Hull KR that need to worry
