Lots of great memories from Bill, but stand-out for me was when he just kept running over Kallum Watkins at Headingley about 3 years ago on our way to a memorable win ??
All the best Bill :BOW: :BOW:

For me it's the try he scored against Saints, full lengther, also burned off Ben Barba. Just don't say anything about how the game ended!

Class player was Bill in his prime for us, definitely top 3 centres in SL for a solid 2/3 years. Unfortunately this injury was a step too far for him. Best of luck

It’s the second coming of the mighty Trinity, we may have lost one of our most dynamic players but good times are ahead. I am sure the loss of more players will be just an hiccup in the glorious future ahead. We after all have an impeccable record of recent signings so all good.
Is that better but in the real world good luck Bill enjoy your retirement.

Bill has been one of our best overseas signings for a long time, shame he had to end like this but i wish him well and thank him for the memories. 2017 & 2018 he was almost unstoppable at times.

Sadly Bill represents what we all know. A new team needs building from the ground up. Had a vicious injury crisis not struck in 2019 that team may well have gone all the way.

Three years on its all gone. To many players have now gone past it and those brought in have largely failed.

Unlike most I’m optimistic as there is now only one option, start again. Where that will be and with who I don’t pretend to know.
