Shafted by Leeds. Gave them the best years of his career turning down more lucrative offers only for Leeds to go back on what they said they were going to offer him.

But then this is Leeds so its no surprise

Next year will be their year!

In terms of Super League

Wigan - very likely - replacement for Sarginson - most likely to have/use marquee spot for him particularly if Williams is off
Hull FC - likely - massive overhaul - looking to throw cash at players - may try and release a few players to get him in
Hull KR - possible - McGuire connection - maybe offer a bit more cash but wouldn't get marquee there
Castleford - possible - Daryl Powell connection/Hardaker effect/doesn't have to move far
Huddersfield - possible but think they're likely to be blown out the water
Warrington - i'd say unlikely with their cap situation but you never know
Catalans - unlikely - think living overseas may be too far
Saints - unlikely - think they've better centres at the mo
Wakefield - Very unlikely - don't think they could afford
Salford - Very unlikely - definitely can't afford

I think Wigan have had their fingers burned too many times with players like Watkins who never seem to recover their early career form. I can see them staying clear. I would predict Cas/Hull FC myself

Not sure why you think he’s worth a big contract, he’s gone and will do well to get another SL contract imo. Leeds well and truly had the best of him and he never really developed in to the player everybody had hoped, internationally etc.

Could he possibly go to the pre retirement Club of Hull K R. The situation at Leeds seems very Smokey.
The new young dynasty of super saints is coming to a ground near you.
Percival-Lomax--Grace-Thompson-Makinson-Swift-Walmsley, not Eastmond...the future is coming.

Not really sure why anyone is predicting Hull. Pre injury form then yes, any club would be interested. But currently we have 3 better centres already, and they are all contracted beyond this season.

They do say form is temporary and class is permanent, but his main attribute was his pace, and his injury seems to have put paid to that. Wigan and Cas might be interested, their centre options aren't great currently. But failing that it will be somewhere like Hull KR or Toronto. Maybe Salford if he isn't asking for silly money.
