History will tell us whether or not this ends up being the right call, but one thing I'm going to put our there is that KS deserves some credit here.
He had some culpability with the Furner affair I imagine, but he made a call. He's made a call on the club captain. It looks like there will be others.
Sinfield is showing the courage to make some big decisions in order to get Leeds back on track.
We can't have our cake and eat it: in order to make changes Sinfield has to release salary cap.
I imagine he'll be attempting to retain the likes of Walker if he can for a start.

Doesn’t seem like a very Leeds-like thing to do. There are some other massive earners at the club that are performing as bad or worse that haven’t as far as we know been asked to take a pay cut. The ones I’m thinking of are newcomers relatively speaking whereas Watkins has given great service and shown a lot of loyalty.

It’s not a great look to an outsider than a player that has given so much can be effectively binned off like this. For your sakes I hope Sinfield knows what he’s doing because things are resembling the 80s and 90s.

I suspect Sinfield finds the club in a similar position to when Powell and Smith took over and he was coming through. Very talented lads in the Academy with changes needed to the senior squad. I actually think Leeds can hardly fail to be more competitive next year with the changes being made - as long as we stay up this year of course.
In all fairness, and I totally get the injury background, Kal has been 6/7 from 10 most weeks this year and we're over half the season in. It looks like they've come to an agreement (pay out) and time to move on.
I'd be amazed if Ferres were retained next season, or JJB, Ablett. There will be a number of others under the spotlight, and I can't see Lolohea being retained next year. Ward I feel is going to have to prove his fitness this year too.
End of the day if you're taking a big wedge in a team under threat of relegation, you have to be performing well individually otherwise of course you'll become a target.
Don't forget this is the second such injury Kal has had in his career, and the club has stood by his rehab both times.
Leeds do try to do the right thing by and large, but we are in serious threat of relegation (again) and there is a case of some eggs and omelettes here.

I’d would expect Watkins, Lolohea, Ablett, Ferres, Golding, Donaldson to leave. Possibly Parcell too for starters.

Yeah and when you add JJB into that, plus maybe one or two others, and we have the space for the +3/4 real quality signings we clearly need (and maybe a better chance of retaining Walker).

But they did and it hasn’t worked out plus they won’t be on anywhere near the money Watkins is on, we are now looking forward just harping on about past mistakes won’t help anything

It doesnt matter if we're paying them in hot dogs they were finished & not worth anything whatsoever.

I think Cuthbertson, JJB, and Albert will be added to that. Think Donaldson might earn another year.

Be interesting to see if the Club mirror the KW approach with Stevie Ward he hasn't completed a season for years & will be on a fair whack.

Id be looking to keep Donaldson out of that bunch and probably Parcell to be fair.

We know, what's the point in bringing up the past mistakes constantly.

Me too, Donaldson has actually impressed me and for the wager he will demand he's good value for money.

I like Parcell too but his form has been pretty scratchy, but I think he'll be gone sooner rather than later TBH
