That is as may be, but I am afraid they can't all stay, someone will be snubbed.

You could read it as saying "we've got an option to tie you down for another year, so if you want to go a fee wouldn't need to be paid but don't give up on a starting spot as there only the highly paid gale and Sezer in front of you"

He's certainly a very talented player.

Has he developed as quickly as expected?
Probably not, hence Leeds preferring a couple of excellent but mature players.

I believe with Trueman he could form an excellent half back partnership.
It may however take a year or two.

He certainly won't be first choice at Leeds AND
Myler would probably be preferred as best replacement.

Cas , I believe could offer more first team rugby, unless Radders has other ideas.
I remember Peter Small

We certainly need another half back if Richardson is going and peanut isn't here to be 4th man. I wouldn't want to pay a fee though.

I think we might be forgetting Gareth O'Brien.
Whilst the Trueman/Richardson combination was talked about a lot, O'Brien has been far better than both of them since he joined mid-way through 2020.

My worry with GOB is he seems to pick a lot of injuries up.

Aye, most do.
But half back is where we don’t have good cover.
We lose GOB it leaves trueman who as a glass back, and Richardson who looks like he’s never played the game at times.

My feeling is we'll see O'Brien and Trueman as first-choice next season, with McLelland as back-up.
Unless Radford has a surprise up his sleeve - Albert Kelly is OOC at Brisbane and was playing well in the NRL before he got injured, and we know Radford is a fan.

The reason GOB gets injured is he gets involved and takes the line on not like the other 2.

Was terrible again on TV the other night, never been impressed with him when I’ve seen him on Sky.

Rhinos now have

Gale
Myler
Sezer
Austin
Sutciffe

Confirmed for next year.

Mcleland will not be there next year.

He won't want to be 5th or 6th choice.

Question - is there ANY strength in the rumour he's coming to Cas.?

He must be a very cheap option.!!!!
