When do their contracts officially end?


I don’t know but if I was Tony smith I’d tell sutcliffe and Dwyer they are not playing.

Briscoe is looking for a club, if he breaks his leg ….career over.
Same for Bodene.
Mustapha going to Cas, again if I was Radford I’d tell him he’s got Covid, rickets or anything

They might actually want to play against NZ, that opportunity doesn’t happen very often.

I don't think the departing players will play, especially Sutcliffe and Dwyer, they won't want to risk injury!

Regardless of who Leeds put out this game should be supported. I'll be there.

I think the last one against NZ was well attended, for some reason this one doesn't seem to be getting much traction - well based by the amount of tickets still available anyway!

Bought a ticket for this today.

Why is it so expensive for a friendly?

Prices look like usual ones for Leeds games. I can't see any reason they would be discounted?

I think last time we played NZ, it was just after we had won the treble and there was a big feel good factor at the club. In the early days people thought the likes of Sinfield, McGuire, Burrow, Peacock etc. were going to be playing against the Kiwis and then it ended up a reserve side which was pretty disappointing.

This fixture could be a repeat with 10 world cup players out and any players who are leaving the club not being involved.

I think its a rare event for a SL team to play a full international side, I hope we get a faire few there, will be a good event regardless of who's playing IMO

There's no reason at all for Briscoe, Sutcliffe and Dwyer not to be playing. They're still under contract, they can't just refuse to play!

Plus it's a high-profile game - I can't see why they would not want to play in it.

Tweet from Brad suggests he's playing.
