In fairness, playing on the wing covers most of his weaknesses. Playing Greg Eden at full-back is like playing Paul McShane at prop. He just doesn’t have the attributes for it. What Eden does well is make metres on kick returns. He’s got the pace to go the length of the field from an intercept or a deep break, and knows how to hold his width in attack close to the opponent’s line.

I’ve no idea why anyone thinks under-contract Castleford would move to Leeds. We know Hetherington doesn’t pay over the odds in wages so they aren’t going to be tempted by money. Hetherington is also unlikely to pay transfer fees, so again Cas aren’t going to let players leave for free (particularly as one of the few clubs making profit in the last few years).


We are saying Leeds should pay a transfer fee which we have the ability to do and just have for Mclelland.

The size of the transfer fee for a kid who has never played SL is very different to what would need to be paid for a player of Eden’s quality, though.

Eden is ok, works well in the Cas system but i wouldn't be fussed about us getting him unless he is in the market for free.
What you looking at?....Butt Head!!

There would be no point putting Greg Eden in the Leeds team of this year or next unless we get a very good centre and change the way we play completely.

We should be looking more at Johnstone, Tupou and Ashurst as realistic options. We must have some funds for transfers. If we put for example, Sutcliffe, Handley and £350k on the table that would be very tempting for Wakey I would imagine.

If they say no to that we could add Walters too to sweeten the deal, oh hang on a minute... :lol:
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

I'm sure i read Walters has extended his contract with us. I know he fell over the line in glorious fashion to get the winning try to give us the treble but surely that shouldn't mean he gets to see out his career with us.

Quite correct. Which changes nothing with what we are discussing here

In normal circumstances I wouldn't think twice about us signing Hock.
But he might just do a job for us for 1 year.
We are lacking some mongrel in our pack and on form Hock has the offloading skills that could suit us.
I can't imagine he will cost us much on the cap and is certainly better than half the forwards we currently have even at his age.

Won't be able to bare the fact an ancient Gareth Hock would be playing vital minutes that a young forward could be playing.
YEAH LIKE WHATEVER!
TEAM UP! TEAM UP!

Hear what you are saying Bang.
But our youngsters will only get bullied hence having Hock in there might just help them develop.

Hock is 35. If he was good or reliable enough to play in SL he'd be doing it already. Enough with the crazy suggestions.

How would Hock help the youngsters develop? Don't take drugs and hit referees or end up like me?
