If he's 30 it doesn't block Tindall. It gives him chance to become a first team player without being thrown straight in.


If Tindall is to make it at Leeds, he needs to be the first reserve Winger at 20 years old. He might only get 4-6 games per year over the next 2-3 years, how does that improve with another Winger in front of him?
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

If Tindall is to make it, he needs to do it because he's better than the other players. Not through lack of competition. Olpherts signing doesn't mean he's automatically in front of Tindall. I get the impressions with Smith that he'll pick who deserves it. Hopefully Tindall sees this as motivation and not a reason to down tools

Not seeing it with Tindall just yet. I agree with the posters who say it is his job to force his way into the team by performing when he's selected. He's clearly fast and at times evasive but for some reason isn't getting over the try line as much as I'd expect a young winger to do. Reminds me a bit of Dave Halley at Bradford some years ago, but I hope I'm wrong.

Has this been confirmed by the club yet?
Not a complete idiot, bits of me are missing

Saw nothing in Olpherts today that changes my view.

I fear if we sign Olpherts that at least one of Fusitua or Hardaker won't be with us next season.

Don't forget that butterfingers turnstile Sutcliffe should be leaving too.
