Whilst Ferris was a big signing, Gaz Ellis got more of a fanfare on arrival. Leeds and Bradford had been chasing him between them for a long time before we finally got him. His welcome on the field on the Boxing Day game was huge.

I wonder where his career would have gone had he signed for the Bulls instead.

Craig Innes if i remember rightly he had just played in the RU World cup and he was a highly thought of ALL Black

He was a top centre and could have become a great player for leeds if he had not walked out of the club to go to Manley , always felt robbed not seeing him develop into a top RL player

Biggest signings are Peacock, Hanley, Harris, Lauitiiti, Schofield.
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

I always think the significance of Keith Senior's signing and his contribution to our success gets overlooked. He was the best British centre in the competition for over a decade and amongst the best in the world in the early to mid 2000s.

In terms of groundbreaking then signing Mullins and Clyde in the same off-season must be up there! Granted Mullins was a total bust and Clyde a partial bust but at the time they signed it was a big deal.

Going back a bit further that period of cliff Lyons, ET and Sam Backo was pretty special both on paper and on the pitch.

Ha, I knew someone would slate him. Agree he didn't have the impact we had hoped. He will always stay with me for that try he scored where he seemed to drag half the team over the line.

Only telling the truth , he came with a great reputation , he scored a try in each of the three test matches against G.B IN Australia . I think the try you were on about was in the Yorkshire cup semi ? maybe against Hull ?
