See post above. Identified does not mean signed, identified does not mean will be coming this year. Identified means just that. That identified player may have decided they actually don’t Fancy coming to the UK this year.

I will ask what I asked above, excluding Boyd which NRL forward who is available now would you like to sign?

In terms of Evans it is a one year loan to cover the outside backs where we have zero cover and players returning from long term injuries.

Sometimes you have to go with what's available. We don't have a lot experience in that back line.

Walker L.Suttcliffe have won GF's & played in relegation battles Handley has plenty of apps Hurrell is a seasoned international Newman is still a rookie but has earned his starting spot. Throw in A.Sutty has versatility & played a full season at Fev plis Mellor has exp playing centre.Now it does lack depth but is it desperate?
Imo too many look at the age of a player as a marker of inexperience or being a seasoned pro. Evans is the perfect example of a player on the way down at 27 IF he had lived up to the hype he would be atthe very least a well established SL Centre. Also where does this myth that he covers FB & Wing come from? He's a centre that played a few games on the wing when Wire got desperate.

Course we aren’t forgetting. However, who we had in mind may have had a change of heart. We may have had a change of heart or felt we have enough. We could simply be waiting for a few things to fall into place before we announce something. Lastly and more importantly we may have done some further work on a deal with a player (Boyd for example) and decided it isn’t worth the money.

Last thing on that is a what are you meant to do with Merrin if he wants to go? Say no stay as our captain, in fact we will force you to stay? Doesn’t seem any point to me, need people who want to play And want to be here, if you don’t want to be here then don’t be.


Agree with this, I think the only mistake the club have really made is coming out at the time and saying they won't be letting him leave until a replacement is lined up - that was a mistake and makes them look daft now he's long gone and there's no sign of the replacement imho.

So your overall view is we shouldnt have signed Evans and we don't need him?

That's fine. Personally I am ok with it but understand people may not agree.

But we have signed him. On loan. For what I imagine is realtively small money.

You might not agree with it but it has happened and we do need to move on.

Regarding Merrins replacement. I totally agree the club said that a replacement was lined up but as had been said, there are many reasons why this may not have materialised at this point not least the passport saga.

People complain when we sign a player like Evans who isn't 'good enough' or the 'right signing' and then complain when we take our time with using our last quote space (assuming the passport comes through) making sure we get the right player.

Im happy to wait it out for the right player in ANY position whether that be a prospect ,a genuine decent seasoned pro or a top class Marquee player.

This will probably come back to bite me, but I’d say we can afford to wait for the right ones now. We should be away from short-term/desperation signings, I think we’ve successfully wrestled the initiative back over a couple if tough seasons.

As soon as our form picks up, it becomes a virtuous circle and quality players want to play for Leeds again. Players want to win trophies.

I know but this squad really should be top half of the table now. That was the form more towards the end of last season. Suddenly we have a few international-ish quality players again and a keen, young squad with talent. Who knows!

Sometimes you have to make stop gap signings.Playing kids who are not ready can be disastrous for their career.
