What is becoming increasingly obvious is this is becoming a real mess it is affecting the fans, looks to be affecting him with him deleting his social media accounts and is potentially affecting the coaches and team.

I personally hope these “injuries” are all time buying whilst one or 2 clubs are making a move for him now whilst we negotiate a fee and line up a replacement for a release ASAP rather than the end of the season. Hopefully we are not playing him to keep him at low risk of getting injured so it does not scupper and deal.

Said it many times, he is a wonderful player but a club like Trinity cannot have the biggest earners on the cap sat in the stands most weeks.

Toms out of contract, he’s clearly not staying wether it’s Catalans Warrington or NRL I wish him well.

Although world class when he’s fit our priority has to be a forward that plays week in week out and can lead the front row

I’ve just been listening to the Pre Leeds interview with Pouching, and I’m sure something doesn’t add up re Johnson. He mentioned the injury and said it was done in training, not cleared up yet and giving him an extra rest with the C final break.
The next question by the interviewer was “what is the specific nature of the injury” A pause by Willie, looked skyward and mumbled, “a groin injury I think” not a very convincing explanation,
just my opinion of course.

It would appear they don’t exactly know the extent of the injury but hope to have him back after the cup final break.
It is now believed he has signed a multi year deal with Catalan.

Is it actually a bad thing though? He’s not getting any younger and I could be wrong here but doesn’t he seem to be injured more than he plays?

It is for you, you'll not be able to compare him with Tommy Makinson now while having a dig at us.

Oh well. Thanks Tom.
Let's move on.

I have never compared him with Makinson because there is no comparison. One is elite level and golden boot and numerous times super league winner , whilst the other is a good super league winger. You will find it’s Wakefield fans trying to convince themselves he is in the same class as Makinson so try and compare the two. My point was it must be frustrating as a Wakefield fan when he’s in and out of the team due to injuries, who must be on a decent wedge so it could free up some money to sign the other Fifita who would be a quality signing
