I think we’d mostly agree on which signings have been awful and which good. To be fair, Ferres SHOULD have been a good signing at the time - but for whatever reasons has been terrible overall.

What is hard to argue with though is the fact that nearly every other club has done better than us in recent years.

Saints with Barba and now Coote have had two of the best FBs in the whole competition.

Bill Tupou and David Fifta at Wakey stand out. Tupou outplayed all our expensive name centres earlier this year.

I know I’m cherry picking and other clubs have also made mistakes, but surely not as many as Leeds.

Cuthbo had great impact yes in his first year. Last 2 years not really contributed on the whole for me. Parcell also had a good first year.

Garbutt was good, I liked him. Don’t know about off the field stuff but I think we lost faith in his fitness as the main reason we let him go, which was a shame. But when did he sign - mid 2014...?


Do your due diligence and the risk should be reduced, ie Tui being a poor trainer Hardaker abuse problems drink and drugs Ferres all round bad egg all this could and should've been scooped out before signing them, but not only these 3

I'm no fan of Ferres but how do you know he's a bad egg.All his Leeds coaches have picked him week in week out.? Hardhaker was a very talented young player who at first gave us great service.Im not sure anyone could have predicted was later was going to happen to him.Hes playing pretty well now for Wigan.Tui I agree with why they thought signing a fullback would make a stand off.
