Ha - love it!
Maybe we can persuade local lad Walmsley as well, just to twist the knife.

Yep I like this signing, very glad we've got it over the line. I'm thinking 2 year contract means either a) there are still question marks over recovery from injury, or b) Bentley wants to see Leeds continue to make progress because he's worked hard to become part of a top SL side or c) he is holding his candle for NRL after 2 years still.

We have a great pack developing - very "Leeds-like" with home-grown young lads developing and learning together. In fact said it before but I think this pack has the potential to be the best we've ever had. Maybe not the talismanic Peacock in there but for me this set could become pretty fearsome.


If Prior stays, we have a serious pack for next season.
Right up there with the top 2.
But we need investment in the backs - a 6, a winger and possibly a FB.
If we do that we could well be back up there challenging.

I think a 6 is a given. The question is who - we really need some quality there to complement Gale if we're serious. This is not a signing to go bargain basement on, although of course we have financial issues to deal with.

Other than that maybe a player who can cover FB and wing well. Pace and quality. I'm reasonably happy then - barring further injuries.

Get the right coaching in to add some impetus for 2022 and I honestly think we are back at the races again. This side still won't reach it's peak for another few years but even now I think they can rattle some cages.

agree with all of that Jim. from reading about the deal for Bentley i think we're not over committing given his injury. He talks about wanting to help win Leeds trophies for many years to come so that sounds long term to me !

Really liking the look of our pack, if we can keep Tetevano for the next number of years leading them we will be in a good place. Just need that 6 for next season now and retain or replace Prior. If Walker and Newman come back strong no need for another back imo, maybe just a winger

Good news. Back row / loose forward positions look tasty and young. So much potential. In the forwards if Prior stays I would not look anywhere else other than 6 and wing/FBack. Key is to get them all fit now. I suggest Martin will depart but that’s more positive than negative as it means we play our young pack every week enabling them to gel as a unit. Gale is a good kicker and potential cover in that area with new 6. All we need now is some live rugby lol.

Is Thompson OOC as well as Martin? I wouldn't be surprised if we see another BR brought in.
Mellor Bentley Donaldson Walters Gannon Smith i think we are well covered in the back row.Our spare cap should be used on a top 6.

Where’s Saddened when you need him…..


What do you need me to do?

Bentley is a brilliant signing for you. I wasn't convinced by him initially but as he's grown he's developed into a wonderful player. He's everything John Bateman wishes he could be. His defense is the best in Super League pound for pound. The Grand Final last year was the perfect example of what you're getting with Bentley. He played 80 minutes with 2 broken ribs and did 69 tackles. Yet when Makinson's drop goal went up, Bentley was one of only two players to chase that ball, beaten to it only by Welsby who was as fresh as a daisy. Some RL neanderthals will tell you he has no attacking threat, but that's not true. He runs good lines and is developing that side of his game well. He made a few breaks against you in recent games at your ground I believe. So all in all I'm gutted he's leaving.
