Im hoping Leeming kicks on now at Leeds after a settling in year at the club. He did ok in his 1st yr but some players take a year at Leeds to get going. He is far better than Dwyer but Dwyer can make something happen with the odd dart.

Its been a real issue has 9 for a long time with players leaving after a season. Its time for some continuity there now.

I'm not as convinced by the arguments on here against Dwyer. Yes Leeming may be more steady-eddy than Dwyer, trying fewer things and just getting it out to the halves, but we look like such a more dangerous team when Dwyer is on the pitch. His energy is crazily high and completely raises our game/momentum, but sometimes it feels like he's put on too late for that momentum to lead to points. (It did feel like he was about to win us the Catalans play off game until he was assaulted)

Either way, I will forever have a soft spot for him because of THAT drop goal vs Cas. :BOW: :BOW: :BOW: :BOW:

Dwyer improved last season he wasnt quite the headless chicken he was the season before.He looks dangerous because he's used in the latter part of the game.For me Leeming is our best 9.

I like Dwyers attitude and enthusiasm and agree that he does lift the team when he comes on, but, and this is a big but, his biggest weakness is (for me) the single most important skill a hooker needs in today's game - his passing his poor. If distribution from acting half is inaccurate or laboured the team cannot attack coherently.

I think Leeming will prove to be a shrewd signing, he missed most of preseason with injury but got better as season went on, reckon he will get better and better of the back of a full preseason.

Team plays so much better with Leeming on. He makes good yards himself too. Is a quality player.
Think Leeming for 60 mind, and soke energy from Dwyer for 20 is the way to go for most games......
I think every position is important in RL. You can't cover a weakness anywhere.....

It would have to be a truly special season from leeming to get near the world cup squad.
