There must be many doors ready to open for JJB ,he's a natural for the media and it wouldn't surprise me to see him appear in a latef series of Peaky Blinders a Northern version. Of Alfie Solomons lol. I think the club will recognize what a natural talent he is and offer him a high profile fro t of house job
Soon we will be dancing the Fandango




FROM 2004,TO DO WHAT THIS CLUB'S DONE,IF THATS NOT GREATNESS THEN I DONT KNOW WHAT IS.

I'm sure he'll be offered some kind of role within the club, too much of a big personality and loyal person to just let go.

JJB is Mr Leeds, it's almost inconceivable that he doesn't stay in some capacity. He would be perfect for running the corporate side as front of office for example.
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

I think he’d be a brilliant mentor for the young lads coming through. If you want to instil a bit of what it means to be a Leeds Rhinos man, JJB is perfect.

Probably a hybrid role but I do think he needs some input with player development.

Imagine as a young lad you’ve got Chev Walker, Rob Burrow, JJB, JP and Sinfield knocking about. I know we can be guilty of a bit of a “jobs for the boys” thing but my word there’s some inspiration walking the corridors at HQ now.

Really? He was solid in the GF wins, but never a standout. McGuire and Burrow played major roles in wins. As did Sinfield. In terms of impact in one or more GFs he'd be behind the likes of JP, Leuluai, Lauti'iti, Diskin, Ablett, Webb, Lee Smith, Donald, Senior and Hardaker. He'd be in any 17 'best of' team to reflect the era, and his contribution shouldn't be overlooked, but lets not pretend he was as influential as some others.

Every successful team has players fans like and the rest of the squad value highly both on and off-field. Some are lucky and play in very successful teams, others just don't (I'm thinking Roy Powell here for some reason, but Dave Heron and many others would qualify).

where would he be in the 17 back rows ahead of him furner, sinfield , ali , ellis , morley , glanville

We were talking golden generation so Morley and glanville don't qualify. Furner played one gf so JJB definitely ahead of him. Sinfield would be 6 in my team of the era. He also played a far bigger role than Ellis, so yes when talking golden generation JJB is a must.

In terms of total career he'd be ahead of everyone on your list with only Ali of forwards you've listed near him.

Other than that you're spot on.

If JJB is a legend what are Sinfield and McGuire?

Brian McDermott paraphrased Peter Fox.
"He'd say if we had 13 Bernard Dwyers we wouldn't lose many RL games. It's the same for us with JJB"

Great club servant - who made a valuable contribution to the glory years - a legend not on the field - very similar to Nathan Massey for me a good solid performer who gave it 100% every time he took the field.

Legend should be reserved for players of exceptional ability whose quality sets them apart from their peer group e.g. Danny McGuire.
Your job is to say to yourself on a job interview does the hiring manager likes me or not. If you aren't a particular manager's cup of tea, you haven't failed -- you've dodged a bullet.
